Croeso I tudalen Dosbarth Powys.
Welcome to the class page of Dosbarth Powys.
On our class page, you will find information about what your child will be learning about during the year.
Our topic in the Foundation Phase this term is Here, there and everywhere, which will mainly focus on Castles. Our class will be accessing a variety of literature which will have a Castle theme. This theme will be continued in our focus tasks and within our Continuous Provision areas.
In Numeracy will be learning about numbers, counting and shape. The children will be learning about numbers from 0-10, 2D shapes and one more and one less. This will be done through a variety of ‘hands on’ focus activities and plenty of songs. The children will also have access to the different areas which will be enhanced with activities to help aid their learning.
In St Marys Brymbo we follow a phonics scheme called Read, Write, Inc. (RWI). RWI is a structured phonics programme which allows children to learn letters and sounds using prompts and rhymes. In Nursery we do 15 minutes of phonics every day, if you would like to learn more about RWI please visit https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/
A small charge of 20p per day is made to cover the cost of a small snack (variety of fruit) and a drink (milk or water). Likes and dislikes are taken into account but children are encouraged to try new tastes. Payment is expected the first day of each week or the first week of each term. Please put all payment in an envelope marked with the amount and your child’s name.
If your child is allergic to any particular food then please inform the school
Dosbarth Powis have their PE lessons every Thursday. If all parents could ensure PE kits are in school by this time this ensures that we can make the most out of these PE lessons. In Dosbarth Powis we encourage independence in getting changed but children are able to ask for help if needed.
Drop off/Pick up
In Dosbarth Powis we dismiss children to parents at the door. We become familiar with parents quite quickly but would request that if anyone different is picking up at the end of the day that staff are told when dropping off, or the office is phoned during the day.
