Welcome to Dosbarth Melyn


Our topic this term is Wriggle and Crawl which is a special project about mini beasts.


In this project we will:


  • Investigate our new stick insects.
  • Discover how to take care of them.
  • Develop children’s knowledge of living things and their habitats.
  • Identify, observe and investigate mini beasts.
  • Learn about life cycles.


This term we will visit Daerwynno Outdoor Education Centre where we will be pond dipping, going on a bug hunt, discovering new mini beasts and having lots of fun learning about creatures who wriggle and crawl!



Class information:


Children's reading folders need to be in school everyday. Please listen to your child read their book and practise their sounds or tricky words at least 3 times a week and record this in their reading record book.


The children will have a spelling test every Thursday and bring their new words home to practise on the same day. Please help your child by practising their words daily. 


All pupils can bring in a piece of fruit for morning break time. 


PE is on a Tuesday. Please can children wear a PE Kit to school on this day.
