Welcome to Dosbarth Hazel's class page. In Dosbarth Hazel, we are lucky enough to have two teachers! Miss Lowrie on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Mapletoft on Thursdays and Fridays. Mrs Jones is our wonderful teaching assistant. 


In Dosbarth Hazel, we really encourage independence now we are in full time school to develop confident and capable learners. 'You can do it!'

We have high expectations so our children can reach their full potential. 'If you try your best, your brain will grow!'

We aim to provide the children with as many real life experiences as possible through fun, hands on and engaging activities. The children's interests encompass all of our learning. Above all else we we want the children to feel happy and safe in school as part of our Alexandra Family.


Summer 1


This half term we will be learning about Heroes and Villains. We will be looking at the story of Hanzel and Gretel, and talking about healthy choices. Children will be learning about money, visiting shops and setting up our very own sweet shop as part of our Dragons Den challenge.


Key information


Snack - We ask parents to provide their child with a healthy snack of fruit each day. 


School dinners - School dinners are now FREE for all Reception children in Wales. Please choose from the options on Parent pay.


PE - PE is every Thursday afternoon. Children need a plain white t-shirt, plain black shorts and pumps or trainers. 

Please encourage your child to dress and undress as independently as possible at home. This really helps when it comes to our PE sessions. Can they undo their own buttons/shoes/trousers? Have a go!


Forest School - Reception will have the chance to take part in some forest school sessions later on in the year. Teachers will provide more information.


Seesaw - We love to share our hard work with you at home. Keep an eye out for posts on Seesaw!

Seesaw is also a great way for us to stay in touch. The teachers will often send reminders and messages. You can also send the teacher a private message. As always you know where to find us in person. 


Twitter (X) -  Want to see more of what we are up to? @alexcptweets Keep your eyes peeled! 


Home reading - Reading books are sent home every Wednesday and are to be returned every Monday. The expectation is that you read with your child each night. It has a huge impact when you help at home. 


Homework - This is provided every half-term. Please see below.
