Dosbarth Walnut (Y1/2)

Croeso i Dosbarth Walnut


In Dosbarth Walnut, Miss Davies is the class teacher. Mrs Jones and Mrs Lewis are the teaching assistants. On Tuesday afternoons, Dosbarth Walnut are taught by Miss Goode. 


In Dosbarth Walnut, the interests of the children encompass all the areas of learning. We encourage independence with our 'can do' approach, to develop confident and capable children. We aim to provide the children with as much real life experiences as possible. Our high expectations of the children ensure that they reach their full potential in a happysafe and fun environment. 





Here, on our class page you will find information about our current topics and have the opportunity to see some of our learning in action! 


In this class, the children are at the heart of everything we do. They help pick the topics we teach so they can get excited about their learning.  The children follow a structured daily routine full of opportunities for hands on and play based learning. During this time, children experience a wide range of activities where they can independently consolidate their learning from focused sessions. 


Please take a closer look at our current topic map to see what we will be learning this half term. 

You will also find the children's homework for this half term.


Don't forget to check out our Twitter page @alexcptweets to see the exciting things we have been doing. You can also post your homework there too! 

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.
