Croeso i Dosbarth Oak
Welcome to Dosbarth Oak's class page. In Dosbarth Oak, Miss Carroll is the class teacher. We also have two wonderful teaching assistants, Mrs Rowlands and Mrs Walker. On Wednesdays, the children in Dosbarth Oak are taught by Miss Jones.
In Dosbarth Oak, the children are placed at the centre of their learning, where their interests influence all areas as they plan how they are going to develop and apply their skills. We encourage our children to be independent and we instil a 'We Can Do' approach to develop happy, confident and capable learners.
We aim to provide the children with as many real-life experiences as possible and plan many exciting opportunities to enrich their learning. The children learn through a careful balance of focus teaching, enhanced and continuous provision and daily access to outdoor learning environments. During this time, children experience a wide range of learning opportunities where they independently explore and investigate in a variety of areas, consolidate their learning and challenge themselves further. Our high expectations, care and dedication to your children ensure that they reach their full potential in a happy, safe and fun environment.

How you can support your child
Read, Write Inc - We follow Read, Write Inc to help children develop their reading and writing skills through daily sessions at a level appropriate for their development. In addition to reading books, we also send home flashcards with the children to further support this at home. Please encourage your child to spend 10 minutes each evening looking through their flashcards and reading their book. Please see the link below for more information regarding Read Write Inc.
PE - Children in Dosbarth Oak have PE every Wednesday with Miss Jones. Please make sure your child has a PE kit consisting of a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps or trainers. It is very important that your child's clothes are clearly labelled.
