Week 1 - Home Learning Timetable


Happy New Year to all the children in Dosbarth Abertawe and their families and friends! We hope you have enjoyed a lovely Christmas break. As you know, unfortunately this week we can't go into school so we'll be doing our learning from home instead.


We have uploaded the timetable for the week ahead. Mrs Howells or Mrs Payne will be available on Teams from 10.30-11am and from 12-12.30pm every day if you need any help or support with your work. Try and practise your RWI sounds and your reading every day if you can. We've set some literacy and some numeracy work for you to do every morning and a wellbeing activity in the afternoon. We look forward to seeing what you achieve!


We can't wait to see your big smiles back at school soon,

Mrs Howells, Mrs Payne & Mrs Starmore


Good Afternoon!


The children have been busy learning about stories and how to describe characters and settings. We have also been learning about days of the week, months of the year and the four seasons too. We have enjoyed learning about France and could find it on the map.


We are starting to get all Christmassy now and will be carrying out our STEM project to make a Christmas face mask. We will be designing and making lots of lovely things to bring home over the next couple of weeks. 

Please remember to send reading books in every day to be checked/changed. Children who bring them daily will earn a prize from the treat box! 


Hello! We hope the children in our class had a lovely week off at half term. It is so nice to have them back in school for the second half of the Autumn Term. We have been so busy already this term and are about to start our new topic - France. 


In Literacy, we had a surprise last week when a suitcase arrived in our classroom and we had to work together to work out whose suitcase it was! It turned out to be Paddington Bears so we made 'missing' posters to put around the school to try and find him. The posters worked and ysterday Paddington Bear himself turned up in our classroom - we were so excited to see him. We wrote questions that we wanted to ask him like 'where have you been?' 'how did you get here?' 'how did you lose your suitcase?'


In Numeracy we have been working on our numbers - counting one more or two more and one less or two less. We're now starting to think about the four seasons of the year, months of the year, days of the week and what we do at different times of the day.


After celebrating Black History Week last week and focusing on the life of Shirley Bassey, we have now begun our learning in other areas of the curriculum. We have started to look at the Christian faith and have begun by thinking about the story of creation. We talked about Remembrance Day on Monday and the significance of the poppy. The children are working very hard and making lovely progress. 


As always, please feel free to speak to any of us on the playground at the start or end of the day, via Dojo or on the phone and we will try to help.


Many thanks

Mrs Howells & Mrs Payne


The children have settled in so well to Year 1. These past few weeks we have been focusing on Ambitious Aled, Healthy Harri and Ethical Eleri. We have talked about how we feel coming back into school and some of the changes we have had to make to our daily routine. We have set ourselves goals for the term and hope to achieve them by continuing to work hard. The children have completed some lovely work and our classroom is looking beautiful.


We are extremely proud Dosbarth Abertawe!
