Dosbarth Glas

Class Information

Croeso i Dosbarth Glas. My name is Mrs Isherwood and I am one of the teachers in Dosbarth Glas. I share the week with Mrs McCallum. We are lucky enough to have Mrs Blight, Mrs Jones, Mrs Wiltshire and Mrs Warry working with us. Together we make up the Reception Team.

We are a busy and hardworking class of 23 who have the opportunity daily to access the curriculum through a range of both focused and enhanced provision both indoors and outdoors.

We are all different and that is exactly what makes all of us so special in Dosbarth Glas. All of our individual personalities and characteristics form beautiful relationships with each other.

We are learning to have a growth mind set whereby we have a ‘can-do’ attitude and we believe that we are able to achieve in all that we do. We are learning to persevere and try, try again, especially if things get a bit tricky.

We encourage all of our children to be independent learners which, although they are young, they are already proving that they are capable.

In Dosbarth Glas, our topics are Myself, Do you want to be friends? Transport and At the Seaside. It is through these topics that we develop our skills in Literacy and communication, Mathematics and Numeracy, Expressive Arts, Health and Well-Being, Humanities and Science and Technology.

Our daily learning also consists of Rapid Phonics, Group Guided Reading, Maths and Literacy which is encompassed by our Catholic ethos and our motto ‘Together we Believe, Achieve and Succeed’.
