Welcome to Dosbarth Coch 2021-22!


We are an energetic group of 7 amazing boys. This term our topic is My Community and the boys have enjoyed doing lots of different activities on this topic. We have learnt about areas in our community such as the beach and the park. We have also looked at people who help us in our community such as the emergency services, opticians, dentists and doctors. 


We look forward to having even more fun for the rest of term.

Hi Everyone!


Hope you're all doing ok!


This week we thought we would end our Circle of Life topic with African style instruments that you can make. You can use things from around the house like plastic cups, pot plants and straws and fill your instruments with noisy foods such as dried pasta, rice or beans. There's also a few suggestions on making your own wind chimes - these are lovely and calming for the garden. 


We hope you're all safe and well and enjoy doing some of these activities at home this week. 


Hopefully the weather continues to be dry and sunny so you can all hang up your windchimes :)


Stay safe, we miss you all!

Hi Everyone 


Hope you've all had a nice week, the weather hasn't been very nice so lets hope for some sun this week!


To start this week we have made a little video for you on the song - Circle of Life - you may see some familiar faces and maybe some younger ones too :) 


We've also added a few stories read by our staff - these are some of our favourite stories in class and some of them are new - have a look in the folder - Stories with Coch staff - hope our pupils enjoy them!!


Last week we asked you to go on a safari hunt of your own - I hope you saw lots of interesting things! This week we are continuing with our animals and where they live. We have added lots of different ideas for you to make various homes for different small animals and minibeasts as well as animal feeders that you can put in your garden. You can use your binoculars to count how many animals you see! 

Week beginning 27th April


Hi Everyone!


Hope you're all well and keeping safe. Another week done and you're all doing fantastic! This week we are adding lots of new things to our class page. We're going to focus on different African animals that you would see on a safari. In the folder above we have added lots of different animal crafts that you can try at home as well as some interactive animal PowerPoints and healthy animal snacks! 


After watching the Lion King last week, why not go on a safari of your own and see what you can find? Maybe hide some animals around the house or look at small wildlife animals in the garden or in the trees.


The staff in Dosbarth Coch have been very busy looking for a lion, can you see him in the video below? We hope you enjoy :) 

Week Beginning 20th April 2020


Hi Everyone


We hope you are all doing ok and you have had a nice Easter all things considered! We understand how difficult this current situation is and we are very proud of all our pupils for how well they are coping without school. We miss you all and hope that we will be back in the classroom soon!


Our next topic is 'The Circle of Life'. We love Disney and will be basing our topic around The Lion King! Each week we will upload different areas to focus on with lots of simple ideas, songs and stories for you to try at home. We will explore the film, the animals, their babies and where they live, African culture and music as well as encouraging you to go on a wildlife hunt in your own garden and using natural materials to make lovely pictures. 


Please see the folder below for this weeks activities! 


Stay safe!

Week beginning 23rd of March 2020


Hi everyone, hope you are all well and keeping safe!


Above we have uploaded a symbol schedule that may help your child understand the structure of the day if you would like to use it, as well as a symbol now and next card that you can use in any way you see fit. These are things we use in class to help the pupils understand what they need to do. Sometimes a weekly schedule can be a bit overwhelming which is why we use the now and next to keep the demands simple and achievable : Now - work,  Next - Choice. 


If you would like anything else or something more specific, please email the school using the email addresses on the letter or use the school website address and your queries will be passed onto me :) 

Welcome to Dosbarth Coch!


This term we have been learning all about minibeasts! We have made lots of different insect crafts for our class displays as well as looking at where they live, counting how many legs they have and which insects fly.


We have enjoyed exploring different materials and textures as well as lots of messy and sensory play!


Our favourite story this term has been the Very Hungry Caterpillar! We have enjoyed counting all the food the caterpillar ate and watching him turn into a beautiful butterfly!! Here are some pictures of us all working hard! Da iawn Dosbarth Coch!!
