Croeso i Dosbarth Ewenni!
Croeso i Dosbarth Ewenni. Our teacher is Mrs Jones
During our Language lessons this autumn term we will be studying the book "Willy the Wimp" by Anthony Browne.We will be writing character descriptions, diary extracts and play scripts. The children are motivated to write and are engaged with our visual literacy approach to writing.Furthermore the class are all working hard on their joined up handwriting and presenting their learning beautifully.
We are very fortunate to have voluntary reading support on a Tuesday. It is pleasure to observe the children reading their books and answering a wide variety of questions to develop their comprehension skills.In addition to this,pupils have thirty minutes daily reciprocal reading sessions which enables them to discuss a particular book and answer a variety of questions.
Each week in maths we are developing previous skills as well as acquiring new ones which are recorded in the learning journal log. 'Active Learn' is given for home learning and pupils enjoy the wide variety of games which help to consolidate skills taught throughout the week. We chant our times tables daily and are transferring mathematical skills with confidence. Big Maths is showing an impact on children's numeracy skills especially when children practice at home and are determined to beat their previous scores.We have also been working hard on our numerical reasoning skills.The children are really confident at explaining how they solve problems and their mathematical language is developing well.
The class particularly enjoy our philosophy sessions when we debate questions and this has resulted in pupils developing confidence in expressing their opinions and improving their listening skills.We are a Rights Respecting School and value everyone's opinion which is developing our ethos of tolerance.The children's general knowledge is developed through watching espresso news and doing the weekly news quiz.
The children are also very privileged to be taught on a Tuesday by Mr Richards.
