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 two teaching assistants helping us in class, they are: Miss Murphy and Mrs Powell. 


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


Our Topic this half term is: Rio De Vida! It is all about Carnivals in Brazil. We will be comparing Brazil and Wales, looking at Animal habitats and learning about the rainforest. We will be learning about the culture and traditions in Brazil, learning how to dance to some Samba music and choreographing our own Samba music and dance. We will be ending the term with our very own Rio Carnival in our outdoor area. It is going to be a really exciting half term! Keep your eyes peeled for photos on our web page and on Twitter :)
