Dosbarth Harlech – Miss S Griffiths

Croeso i Dosbarth Harlech!

Summer Term

I hope you have all had a great Easter break. It seems very strange to say we are now starting Summer Term 2021 already! As always, I am super excited about the term coming up and all the lovely things planned.

This Half term we will lay a heavy focus on ‘Outdoor Learning’, with this in mind please follow the daily weather forecast closely. From a waterproof coat to suntan lotion, we do seem to be having 4 seasons in one day at the moment!

Our next topics will be based around the fictional stories ‘Superworm’ and ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’. We will also be looking into the life cycle of caterpillars and butterflies …..we may even have some visitors arriving soon too, watch this space!








Outdoor PE will continue on a Tuesday afternoon with our sports specialist and Miss Champion. Please ensure the children come to school in their school sports kit on this day. Fresh water each day in a clearly labelled water bottle is always advisable.

Please continue to read regularly at home as it really does make a huge difference, comments in the yellow reading book are also very helpful. I will be starting a ‘Bookworm’ competition next week so please ensure all reading books are returned daily.

Feel free to contact me (between 8:30am and 4:00pm) via Class Dojo or my email address should you have any questions, queries or news you would like to share with me!

Thank you for your continued support.

Curriculum overview – Summer 1

Croeso nol- Welcome Back!                  

I sincerely hope you all managed to have a happy holiday!

This Term our topics will be ‘We are Wales’ and then later on in the term ‘Easter’ and new life. Please find attached a suggested timetable. The next two weeks (WELSH) topic activities can be found on one easy document found below. This is a ‘pick and mix’ plan where you can choose when and what activities to have a go at.  We realise ‘Home Learning’ can be very tricky but please remember that you and your child’s health and well being are our main priority.

 The worksheets and any additional information will be posted on Seesaw for the children to complete. Please share any work or activities that your child completes on Seesaw. It’s always lovely to collate and produce our weekly ‘Good News’ Pic collage for Dosbarth Harlech which is posted at the end of each week on Class Dojo.

Feel free to contact me (betweem 8:30am and 4:00pm) via Seasaw, Class Dojo or my email address should you have any questions, queries or news you would like to share with me!

Diolch yn Fawr- Miss Griffiths.

Yo, Ho, ho! poem

We are Wales

Welcome back! I hope you have all had a super summer break and are ready to start a new exciting adventure in Dosbarth Harlech. I am very lucky this year to have the privilege of continuing to teach lots of children I already know very well in a mixed Year 1 and 2 Class. In Class, there is myself Miss Griffiths (Class Teacher) and Miss Champion -Teaching Assistant (a really appropriate name!)

The children have all made an excellent start to the year and we thank you for your support so far in helping them to settle so well. During their time in school we want school to be a pleasurable, exciting, fun experience, a place that your child enjoys coming, a place where he/she can relax and be him/herself. Your child’s happiness and well-being is paramount to us. New routines in school will, of course, take some time to get used to and are subject to change and subject to change in line with Government recommendations.

Here is a little extra information related to the day-to-day life in Dosbarth Harlech:

We will be spending lots of time outside and so children will need to have a warm coat with them EVERY DAY.

Please ensure ALL items are clearly labelled-from water bottles to footwear!

P.E: will take place on Tuesday this year and will be taught by Miss Thomas. Children are asked to come into school wearing their PE kits the first term. This should be a kit suitable for outdoor PE, as we hope to be outside as often as possible. I suggest a plain navy blue or black tracksuit with a hoodie or sweater, and a t shirt underneath, comfortable sports shoes/trainers.

Importance of regular reading -we are pleased to share that children will be allowed to bring reading books home and are encouraged to read at home as often as possible. Each child will be given a reading record, please ensure this is signed. They will also have spellings and keywords. Book bags should come into school everyday.

We have lots of exciting things planned this Autumn term, initially our first topic is based about ‘ME and my feelings’ which we will explore whilst carrying out all our initial assessments. Together we will be reading the amusing, yet very sensitive book written by the new exciting author Anna Llenas.

Later in the term our topic will be titled ‘Who lives in a house like this?’ Any ideas what this might be?

If parents/carers have any worries or concerns, please feel free to catch me at the end of the school day. I am contactable via Class Dojo.

*Remember to sign up to Class Dojo to see all of the exciting things your children are getting up to each day. The children also get to see the comments you write back which makes them feel very happy and proud.

I look forward to getting to know you and your children even more this term and wish you all a very happy, healthy, safe Autumn term with us.

Warmest Wishes

Miss Griffiths
