     Happy New Year to all the children and families in Dosbarth Helyg from the Year 1 Team!


All pupils who attended school at the end of the Autumn Term were given a pack containing home learning resources. If you have already completed the pack then don't panic because there will be more work set on Active Learn and Google Classroom. 


Online learning will be on Google Classroom from Wednesday 6th January. Passwords for Google Classroom were sent home with your child in October. 


Active Learn- your child has books allocated to read and comprehension questions to answer. In addition, there are games to develop skills in Maths. 


Google Classroom-  this site contains specific learning tasks and from January 6th will be updated with home learning activities.  


Thank you for your continued support. 

Croeso i Dosbarth Helyg!

Welcome to Dosbarth Helyg!


We are a lively, happy class of 30 pupils. Mrs Pain and Miss Wilsher are our teachers. We are really lucky to have three teaching assistants helping us in class, they are: Mrs Murphy, Mrs Powell and Mrs Begum. 


Mrs Pain teaches us on Mondays and Tuesdays and Miss Wilsher teaches us on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. 


Our Topic this term is: Dens and Dandelions! We are hoping the weather stays sunny and dry for as long as possible so we can enjoy our outdoor learning as much as possible. We will be planting seeds, watching them grow and learning about the life cycle of a dandelion. We will be doing a lot of Forest School activities e.g. den building, leaf weaving, stick art, making nature wands, making Mandalas, making Eco Glitter with leaves and making nature paint brushes! We have so many fun activities to look forward to.   

Our PE days will be on Wednesdays. We have access to the hall every other week. These are our PE days this half term:

Wednesday 25th November

Wednesday 9th December

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


If you need to speak to Mrs Pain or Miss Wilsher please contact school via the school office or email.
