Dosbarth Caerdydd – Mrs J Lewis

Welcome back!

I hope you all managed to enjoy some of the summer and are ready for the last year or two of primary school.

I’m so looking forward to this new and exciting year ahead, as we’ve got some great topics lined up, and will hopefully be able to enjoy some of the other activities that are so looked forward to in years 5 & 6.

These years give children so many opportunities to build on their skills, experiences, confidence and independence in order to prepare them for their life in secondary school and on into the wider world.

At the beginning of this term the children are asked to apply for the extremely important roles of Head/Deputy Head boy and girl, if they so wish, as well as the positions of House Captains. As a school, we regard these positions very highly.

As far as the weekly timetable is concerned, I just want to pass on the following information:

Wednesdays – P.E. kits are needed to be worn to school (with Mr Hamilton)

Fridays ( until Christmas) – we are going swimming. You can pay the £2:00 per week on ParentPay.

With regards to homework, the weekly challenges will continue to be reading and times tables practise. The children and yourselves will have been provided with the login details for our new online Reading Record – Go Read.

Other homework will be sent home periodically, relating to the topic work being done.

Although homework is not a legal requirement, much of the work done at home will complement and enhance the work being done in class, and will be put into the children’s books to show their progress. It also helps in preparing them for the expectations and demands of secondary school.

Homework can be done on paper, via Seesaw, on HWB or can be emailed directly to me on my class email –

Could I please ask that you encourage your child to email their work themselves, using their HWB account, rather than your own personal ones, as this is a great way of improving their IT skills.

Lastly, I would just like to say that my DOJO is open frequently if you have and concerns or questions.

You can also contact me through the above email address.

Diolch yn fawr,

Mrs Lewis
