Croeso i Ddosbarth Helyg!

Welcome to Dosbarth Helyg!


We are a lively, happy class of 30 pupils. Mrs Pain and Mrs Wynne-Williams are our teachers. Miss Wilsher is now working from home but we still see her weekly via video calls. We are really lucky to have two teaching assistants helping us in class, they are: Mrs Evans and Mrs Powell. 


Our topic this half term is 'Paws, Claws and Whiskers'. We will be learning all about pets, wild animals and animals in wildlife parks! 

Please take a look at the Curriculum News to find out more!


Our PE day is Tuesday. Please make sure your child has appropriate PE kit for the weather. Don't forget that PE kit has to be worn to school! 


As the weather is starting to get warmer, please could you make sure that your child is already wearing sun cream when they arrive at school and that they bring in a hat and a drink.


Reading books and/or spelling words go home on a Tuesday and need to be returned on a Friday :) 


If you need to speak to Mrs Pain or Mrs Wynne-Williams, please contact school via the school office or email. 





We had a visit from Luna the dog and learnt all about how to care for a pet!
