This Term...  

 This term our topic is ‘Medieval Madness’. We will be finding out about castle, dragons and much more! 


In Maths we will continue to focus on counting, ordering numbers, addition and subtraction problems. We will also be learning about doubles and halves within 20 and continue to work on bonds to 10. We will also look at time, 2D and 3D shapes and money. It would be very helpful if you could help your child practise their maths at home. You can also find maths games and activities on www.topmarks.co.uk to play with your child.


In Literacy we will be doing lots of different types of writing during the year.  We will be writing stories, letters, facts and much more! You can help develop this further at home by encouraging your child to write shopping lists, birthday cards and messages all of which they will enjoy!  We will also be working really hard on the presentation of our work.

P.E Lessons are on Tuesday morning. We are now asking that the children wear their PE kits to school. They can then stay in their kits all day. PE kits do not need to be brought into school until further notice. Just a quick reminder that jewellery should not be worn in school for safety reasons!

Home Learning

We will assign weekly home learning for your child. In line with Welsh Government advice we will be sending this online, and we will give you and your child all the information on how to access it. (Letter with log ins have already been sent home, please contact us if you need another copy.) We are aiming to create a 'Blended Learning Approach' and will be to practise work completed in class. As always we hope you find these activities fun to complete together.

Homework will be assigned on a Friday and can be handed back in again by the following Wednesday. 


Reading is so important for the children’s development with their language, imagination and writing. We will continue to provide your child with 2 reading books a week. Please if you could tick or sign or write a small comment when they have read with you so we know to send home a different book. Thank you!  Reading books will be issued to your child every Monday and will then need to be returned to school by Friday ready to be re-issued the following week.

Outside play

The children will have access to outside play for most of their sessions so it is important that they bring coats every day. Please put their names in their coats/ cardigans / jumper so there are no mix ups. Thanks!

Water Bottles and Snack

We try to encourage the children to drink plenty during the school day. Please can the children bring a named bottle to school with water in it that they can keep in the classroom. Children can also bring some fruit to have as a healthy snack at break time if they wish.


Thank you for taking the time to read this information.  We look forward to an exciting term in Dosbarth Tulip and will continue to create a happy and fun environment where your child will develop and grow. Please feel free to contact us via the office if you have any questions. Thank you!
