Croeso i ddosbarth Ms Brown a Mrs Dodd, Blwyddyn 4 a 5
Welcome to Ms Brown and Mrs Dodd's Class, Year 4 and 5.
Ms Brown teaches on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays; and Mrs Dodd teaches on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
As you can see, Wednesday is a shared day, with either Mrs Dodd or Mrs Brown in class.
We are supported in class by three brilliant Teaching Assistants.
Mr G Evans, Miss E Davies (who supports two children in class) and Miss J Andrews (who works 1:1 with a child in class).
We are an energetic and committed group of adults, who enjoy coming to work every day to work with your children, and we often find ourselves learning with and alongside your children.
Our class has 31 children in it, with different interests and skills, and we offer a varied curriculum which caters for all children.
Our timetable is carefully structured with daily Reading, Maths and English activities, and other subjects taught across the week.
We try to link subjects together wherever possible, but some stand alone subjects are taught separately (for example, PE).
Our pupils benefit from many first hand learning experiences in our class, and their pupil voice is central to the activities we plan for them.
As a staff, we are currently in the process of designing a new Curriculum for Wales for Ysgol Penycae, and we are very excited to be at the forefront of introducing a broad and balanced curriculum for the 21st Century to your children.
This will be rolled out across all Primary Schools in Wales from September 2022.
