Dosbarth Hywen

Welcome to our Year 1 page.

The children are embarking a new journey in Year 1 where

they begin to develop the key skills of independence, perseverance and collaboration. Our learning journey will continue to have a literacy and numeracy focus and cover the curriculum through our exciting new Cornerstones Topics.

This term our topics are Family Album and The Big Wide World that have a Geography and History skills focus. We’ll be comparing and contrasting our community and Wales to different countries, providing opportunities for the children to understand the importance of Global Citizenship.

The children will also consolidate core skills through our Big Maths and Read, Write Inc, programmes and continue to develop Welsh language skills. We are learning to use ICT safely and purposefully with greater independence. We will also learn about coding and computing under the new Digital Competency Framework. We’re also working hard on a new handwriting scheme and hope parents can help with this at home. Watch this space!

We are looking forward to a year full of happiness, learning and growing!

Together: Learning and being our best.
