Your child can purchase a range of fruit from class for £1 per week or 20p per day. There is also milk available in the morning and at break time. Water bottles are available from class at a cost of £1.50. These are kept in class to ensure children always have water available throughout the day.


Reading Books/Llyffrau Darllen

Your child will read regularly in class and reading books will be sent home at least once a week . We cannot stress how important it is for you to hear your child read every week. Please sign and comment on your child’s reading in their reading diary.


School Uniform

Please label your child’s uniform especially jumpers, coats and PE kit. If you need to buy school uniform it is available from Tees R Us in Prendergast. We do not have uniform at school anymore.



The school is continuing to use a handwriting scheme called Letter Join. This has online resources that you and the children can access at home to help the children with their cursive handwriting.


PE/Ymarfer corff

Our PE session will be on a Tuesday morning . We would appreciate it if you could provide a T-Shirt, jogging trousers and trainers. If your child could bring their PE kit in on a Monday for the week as we can’t always rely on the weather! Please ensure all kit is labelled with your child’s name.


We want your child to have a wonderful time in Year 1 and make excellent
progress in all areas. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not
hesitate to talk to us.

Thank you for your continuing support,

Mrs Amanda Owen and Miss Emily Welch.

The Children in Dosbarth Oren had a super day on Thursday at St David's. We went along to find out all about St David and what it means to be a pilgrim.

We all were very fortunate to have a walk around the Cathedral and also were lucky enough to sing along with the organ.

The children have continued to learn more about Wales,  we used charcoal to create a landscape in the style of the artist Kyffin Williams; we made love spoons for our Mum's; and we learned to use scales; reading scales and using weights.
