Dosbarth Melyn 2020-2021
A warm welcome to another school year and a new class for your child - Dosbarth Melyn.
We will use the book LEAF by Sandra Dieckmann as a focus for much of our learning this term. You can see the topic web below covering all the skills we hope to cover this term. Where possible we will link our learning to Leaf.
Below you will see an example of some of the work your children have been doing this term but you will find more examples on Seesaw.
If you have an questions or queries you can contact me on Seesaw or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wishing us all a healthy and happy year of learning. 😀😀
Mrs Gideoni, Miss Waldie and Mrs Smith
Where is your child on their Writing Journey?
All the children in Dosbarth Melyn are on different stages of the writing journey. Using this as guidance, can you identify where your child currently is? I would hope that by the end of the year ALL children will be able to write independently and have reached steps 10-12.
You might find that your child is very reluctant to put pen to paper. They will often use avoidance strategies more than any maths or reading activity. It is a matter of confidence so please encourage your child to 'write' as much as possible even though it might not make sense.
Please don't correct spellings as the main aim initially, is to build their confidence and for them to gain the belief that they are actually 'writing.' The more they write and get praised for it the more their self belief and confidence will grow.
I have already given out more detailed advice on Seesaw but if you have any further concerns or questions please contact me.
