Dosbarth Collen


Hope you are all safe and well. It was great to talk to you last week on the phone and also through Google Classroom. I miss you all so much. 


As it is half term this week I won't be adding any more work on Google Classroom. If you want to continue to do work, there are still plenty of books on Bug Club, Maths games on Abacus, 2Do's on Purple Mash and activities on Google Classroom. Remember there are also daily lessons on BBC Bitesize. 


If you are not already using Google Classroom please try to log in. There are lots of different activities on there - poster making, graffiti art, quizzes and you can also CHALLENGE ME!  



Bore da Dosbarth Collen.

Great to see more of you accessing Google Classroom. I hope you are enjoying the quizzes as there are more to come. If you would like to request a 'topic' for a quiz, log on to Google Classroom and let me know your ideas.


Mental Health Awareness Week

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. The theme is Kindness

You will find ideas and resources on the Parents page, Home Learning Information. You need to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page.

I have put the Kindness Calendar on our page as well - see below.

Mental Health Awareness Week - Kindness


It was great to talk to you last week. Hearing your voices and giggles was fantastic. It was lovely to hear what you have been up to - drawing, baking, assault course creating and testing, your own research projects and learning new skills (saying the alphabet backwards lol). You are such a creative bunch! Proud teacher moment!


Lots of you are now accessing on line learning - Bug Club, Abacus and Purple Mash. I have allocated more activities for children who have completed tasks. 


Remember to check out Pobble 365 - they have a new picture everyday and a variety of activities that will spark your interest. 


Google Classroom

11 of you are already on Google Classroom - whoop whoop!!! You are completing work and chatting with your friends and ME (yay!). If you are having any difficulty accessing Google Classroom or have misplaced your login details, message Mrs Prescott via the Gabalfa FaceBook page as she is our IT superhero and code keeper.


04.05.20 May the Fourth be with you! (lol)

I will be phoning you all during the next couple of days. It will be great to say hello and to hear your voices.


Google Classroom

Use your Hwb email address and password to log in. You can see all the fun activities I have assigned the class - online games, videos to watch, posters to create, VE day activities and more. You can also chat with each other. 

If you have any problems with technology, you can message Mrs Prescott on our Gabalfa School Facebook page and she will help you sort it out. 


Other online learning

It's great to see how many of you are accessing Bug Club, Abacus and Purple Mash. Remember to answer ALL the questions for each book and play ALL the levels (Bronze, Silver and Gold) for each Abacus game. 

Hip Hip Hooray - some more of you have visited Purple Mash. It's lovely to see your work about Cardiff.


Don't forget BBC Bitesize has new activities daily. 


Prynhawn da/ Good afternoon

Hope you are all doing well and continuing to stay safe.


Well done to those who are accessing Bug Club and Abacus - a few more children have logged in this week.

I have allocated new activities for those who have completed Abacus games - Bronze, Silver and Gold levels. 

I have also allocated new books if appropriate. Remember, you need to complete ALL the questions.

Also, look in your library for incomplete books - they are very sneaky and hide in there (if you have opened them but not answered all the questions).


Purple Mash is feeling very sad because nobody has logged in and completed any 2Dos. Make Purple Mash happy - log in and complete the 2Do about Cardiff.



You can now access home learning in Google Classroom. You login with your HWB login and you will see our class. I have already put some activities on there - graffiti art, questions about an intriguing picture and a science quiz.




Hey everyone.

I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. I know this is a strange time ( it must be because I miss you lot - Honestly! I really do) but remember you are a resilient bunch!


I'm glad to see some of you have been reading on Bug Club and playing Abacus games. Remember to answer all the questions to complete the book. Sometimes, you will have to write a full response, using the text to support your answer. If you have opened the book but not answered all the questions, you will need to look in the 'Library' section. 


Don't forget, there are also lots of 2dos on Purple Mash - some Maths, English and a project about Cardiff.


Remember to read EVERY day and practice Learn Its and CLIC tests. 

Activities to do WITHOUT the internet

BBC Bitesize  

There are daily English and Maths lessons/activities plus an additional 'topic' based lesson e.g. Egyptians, Solar System. Each lesson contains a video/videos and activities. 

The 'topic' based activities might give you some ideas for our future topics in class.

Graffiti in Gabalfa School

Bryce Davies @BoilerHouseDiff visited Dosbarth Collen to launch our Celf Cymraeg Week. He discussed his style of art and his enthusiasm was infectious. He inspired Dosbarth Collen to get creative. The children's work will be exhibited in the school hall from 2pm on Friday 14th February. 
A HUGE thankyou to all the parents and family members who came to watch our class assembly. The children were fantastic, as always. They chose their own groups and decided on the content of their presentations. I am so proud of the work they have achieved! 


Dosbarth Collen's class assembly will now be on Friday 7th February.

We look forward to seeing you in the hall for a 9:00 start.
