MEET THE TEAM
Croeso i Dosbarth Willow!
Our whole school topic this Autumn term is 'Let's Celebrate!'
Our values this term are 'Friendship' and 'Wisdom'.
Important information for parents/carers of Dosbarth Willow
PE - The children will need their kit on a THURSDAY for this term. Please label and bring joggers, a jumper, t shirt and trainers for children to change into.
Wellbeing Wednesday – children should come to school in their PE kit on a Wednesday as we aim to do activities to improve our physical and mental wellbeing on this day.
Reading - We encourage you to read daily with your child at home as well as going through their letters and sounds, tricky words and high frequency words. We will also listen to children read in school and adjust their reading levels if appropriate.
Trekking Tuesday - The children will need their wet weather clothing every Tuesday for this session. Please bring in labelled wellies and waterproofs for children to change into. The children really enjoy the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom in our wonderful outdoor area!
Class Dojo - We make good use of the Class Dojo to communicate with you at home as well as displaying all the wonderful learning that takes place in and outside of our class.
Snack & Milk – We have snack time after break where all children are able to have milk. Please label your child’s fruit and/or pot.
Homework – Homework is set half termly with an activity to cover each Area of Learning and Experience in relation to our topic (Let’s Celebrate), our maths focus (Place Value) and literacy focus (Peace at Last). Children should complete one activity per fortnight, or more if they would like to. The homework activities have been sent home but if they are to be misplaced, they can also be found on Class Dojo. Please post their work to Hwb or bring it in for me to see. I would love to display some of their hard work on our working walls!
Spellings – Spellings will be sent out every Friday to be tested on the following Friday. Spellings are based on the phonic sounds we have been learning that week in class.
Funky Friday – Every Friday we spend the afternoon doing activities of the children’s choice to encourage their voice in the curriculum. Usually, these are more creative activities, so you may want to send your child in wearing clothes that you don’t mind getting paint on! The children are very fond of Funky Friday and it is seen as a reward for hard work at the end of the week. We will be having milkshake on this day so please let me know if you do not want your child to have this.
Facebook – We will be posting about our learning every Tuesday on the school Facebook page - St Oswald’s VA Primary School and also on Twitter - @YsgolSantOswallt.
