Welcome to Dosbarth Oren!

 

Croeso i Dosbarth Oren!

 

Our teachers Mrs Naish (Mon, Tues and Wed) and Mrs Downey (Thurs and Fri). Our teaching assistants are Mrs Huckson and Mrs Lloyd

 

Sensei Rob joins us on a Thursday for karate. We need our P.E for Mondays.

 

 

This term we are learning about Under the Sea and Pirates.

 We have learned about different sea creatures and plants, and have visited beaches to find out what is the same and different about them. We enjoyed stories related to our topic and have made our own story books on our Ipads. We composed our own music to match different sea movements. We have started masking our pirate passports after finding out about real pirates. We are using our outside area to role play our new pirate adventures. We are looking forward to making ships biscuits and pirate ice-cream boats.
