Croeso i Dosbarth Melyn
Mrs Bevan and Miss Watkins welcome you to Dosbarth Melyn's class page!
Children need access to water throughout the day. Please can they bring a labelled water bottle filled with water only - no squash!
During the morning session, children have a healthy snack break. Snack can include fruit, raw vegetables, yoghurt, cheese or crackers. Please note - the local authority have banned grapes for health and safety reasons - grapes must not be sent to school.
Please check your child's bags for letters or notes home!
P.E. is on Wednesday. Please make sure your child brings a PE kit in with them at the start of term. They can then leave this in school to be collected and washed at the end of every half term.
We will listen to your child read a minimum of twice a week. Mrs Bevan will listen to your child read individually on a Tuesday and Miss Watkins holds guided reading sessions every Thursday. Please send your child's reading book to school everyday. To support us in improving your child's reading and understanding of the text, please listen to your child read at least once a week at home and discuss what has been read. (See the documents below for the types of questions to ask). Be sure to sign your child's red reading log. Only then can we change your child's book.
Mrs Bevan and Miss Watkins have introduced special cupcake keyrings to the children. The cupcakes have letter sounds or words that your children need to learn to read. Once they can read the sounds and words on their keyring, send them back to school and your child will get a reward! We will then add the next 3 sounds or words.
Outdoor learning is an everyday occurrence in foundation phase. Your child will need to bring wellies (which can be left in school) and wear suitable, weather appropriate clothing everyday.
