Welcome to Dosbarth Helyg !


We are a lively class of 31 pupils. Miss Smith and Miss Wilsher are our teachers. Mrs Murphy is our class based teaching assistant and Mrs Driscoll is a teaching assistant that helps us with our reading and writing. 



From Monday 1st June your teachers have planned a new topic called  Water.

There will be lots of activities you can do either with or without technology.

Before you start our tasks : 

Draw pictures or make a list of where you can find water - either inside your house or outside on a walk with your family.

Think about what you know or would like to find out about water.

Think about why water is important and what it is used for - you could make a poster showing your ideas. 

Think about how you can stay safe around water - ask your family to help with your ideas !

Dosbarth Helyg

We had the BEST day at Cardiff Castle. We had a tour of the castle and then we got to meet a knight! He showed us his armour and weapons. We even dressed up and got to hold a sword. 


We had such a lovely day for World Book Day. We shared our favourite stories with each other and some of us read them to the class. We love Julia Donaldson books! We read the Gruffalo and then made masks and biscuits. It was really fun!

Our Welsh Blankets song

We worked with The Songwriting Doctor to create a song about welsh blankets.

We celebrated the end of our class topic 'Castles and Dragons' by holding a banquet. We had a fantastic time. Thank you to all the parents for coming.

We made fruit kebabs for our class banquet.

Our class text has been Zog by Julia Donaldson. We have LOVED reading it! We even learnt how to do some first aid as Zog is so clumsy.

We love learning outdoors!

Emmie's Birthday Book

Thank you so much to Emmie for bringing in the fantastic book 'What the Ladybird Heard Next' by Julia Donaldson. It was her birthday and she has kindly donated the book to the school. Thank you so much Emmie, we loved reading it and making the animal noises.
