Croeso i Dosbarth Chwech

Mrs Smallwood

Croeso i Dobarth Chwech a welcome to Class Six. In Dosbarth Chwech Mrs Smallwood is the class teacher and Mrs Ellson is the learning support. In Dosbath Chwech we are really hardworking, kind and always trying to be the very best that we can be. We do whatever we can to make our learning creative and fun, and make sure we are happy and ready to learn.

The children have access to a balance of focus activities and free choice time in provisions. During free choice we challenge ourselves to build upon our learning against success criteria’s and in provisions we undertake independent chilli challenges to consolidate our learning and skills. We enjoy learning both in the class and in the indoor and outdoor provisions.
