Dosbarth Bryn Garth
Years 1 and 2 – English Stream
Croeso i’r Dosbarth Bryn Garth! Welcome to Dosbarth Bryn Garth’s class page.
Our class teacher is Mrs Rachel Jones and the class TA is Mrs Cheryl Meadows.
Learning in our class will be undertaken in a play-based and experiential way with the children working in small, focused groups (with the teacher or TA leading learning) or working independently on challenges and tasks as part of Amser Enfys (independent child-led learning).
This term, our theme is, “The Water of Life.” We will be focusing on Science-based activities and will be learning about the weather and seasons, floating and sinking and the properties of water. We will be learning about the rivers that are close to our school, namely the Wye (Gwy) and Irfon and the stream Nant yr Arian. There will also be a focus on Expressive Arts, where we will be creating dances, music and artwork based around the theme of water. During the term, we will be learning about how water is used in different religious ceremonies and the importance of water in our lives.
As a class, we will undertake daily 10 minute physical activities. In addition to this, our focused P.E. sessions will take place on a Thursday afternoon. We ask that children come to school wearing their P.E. kits.
Out, Out and Away
Our Out, Out and Away sessions (Outdoor Learning) will take place on a Tuesday. We encourage children to bring in a pair of wellies and a set of waterproofs, for us to keep in school for the term.
We encourage healthy eating and drinking in our school and ask parents to provide a fruit snack and water to eat and drink during snack time.
