Croeso i’r Ddosbarth Tiwlip
Spring Term 2018
CROESO PAWB!!!!!! Happy New Year to you all. We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We all had an amazing time, and have already shared with our teachers all the fabulous presents we had and exciting things we did over the Christmas holidays.
We have a very busy term ahead of us, with lots of upcoming, exciting events. Please keep popping back to see updates and photos of these events.
Please Note: We will be sharing the majority of our class /department information and photographs via Seesaw. Parents, please access your child’s seesaw account regularly.
Our fabulous new topic is called ‘Once Upon a Time….’ (Fairytales). We are really looking forward to discussing and sharing our ideas about our topic. We will then use these ideas to help our teachers plan lots of exciting activities and have even transformed our role play area into a magical, fairytale cottage!
Things to remember:
– PE is on a Tuesday. Please make sure children have a white t-shirt, black shorts and black plimsoles/trainers in school, all clearly labelled in a named bag.
– Reading books will be sent home on a Friday and need to be returned by a Wednesday at the latest the following week. Please can you write a comment in the space provided in your child’s green reading record book, as it helps us to plan for their future reading activities. Also please encourage your child to complete the activities in the record book too.
-Phonics homework will be sent home this term via Seesaw. This may be a video, game or activity to share with your child. These activities will reinforce phonic sounds that they have been learning in school or will introduce them upcoming sounds they will be learning.
Autumn term 2017
We had an excellent first term. Our teachers were extremely proud of the way we settled into life in Dosbarth Tiwlip, and how we tried our best and took part in all the different learning experiences/activities on offer to us. Our topic was ‘SUPER ME, SUPER HEROES’.
Academic Year 2017-2018
Welcome to our class page. In Dosbarth Tiwlip, we have a mixed class of Reception and Nursery. Our teacher is Miss Crumpton, and we are also lucky to have Miss Allenden, Miss Roberts and Mrs Hall working with us too! On our class page we will share with you exciting things we have been doing in school, let you know of any upcoming, interesting things we are going to be doing this year, and also give you a taster of what life is like in Dosbarth Tiwlip.
We follow a visual timetable that helps us remember our daily routine, such as guided reading, phonics, focussed tasks, circle time, snack time etc. We also promote independent learning, encouraging children to select a learning area every day where they wish to develop and further their learning. In our class we have areas such as the cosy corner, monster maths, incredible writers etc which our children help to plan for. They usually have much better ideas than the adults.
We also promote a growth mindset way of thinking and approaching learning to help our children to learn new things, be resilient and never give up. This helps our brains to GROW!!!!!
