Derwen (Oak)

Dosbarth Derwen

Welcome back to Autumn Term 1 and our brand new school!!

We are an energetic class of 24 pupils made up with a mix of Year 2 and Year 3 children.

Our teacher is Miss Griffiths and Miss King is our teaching assistant. We will also have

Mrs Driscoll to help us on a Thursday.

We are really excited for all the learning opportunities we will receive this year and believe that learning should be fun. We are also looking forward to outdoor sessions and using the new build facilities.

This term, our contexts for learning are 'Happiness’ smiley and ‘Supermarket’.


In Literacy we will be writing lists, instructions, diary entries and stories. We will also be learning to read and spell key words. Our oracy skills will be developed through talking about context themes in groups.


In Numeracy we will be ordering numbers to 100 and learning bonds to 100. We are learning to tell the time and add money up to £1 giving change. We are practicing our 2, 5 and 10 times tables and identifying properties of shape. We will also apply our skills across the curriculum by sequencing events and sorting objects by more than one criterion.

We will use our individual Active Learn logins to enhance our learning in these areas.

Through our context we will research food from around the world, explore shopping past and present and discuss how to be happy through being healthy.
