Ty Gwyn Special School

"Learning To Achieve"


Dosbarth Rhymni have been working really hard this half term on their context for learning 'Cynefin (Where I belong)'. The pupils have been finding out about habitats and exploring all things Welsh.

Last month the children had so much fun on World Book Day. We loved reading the book 'Supertato' By Paul Linett and Sue Hendra. The pupils had a great time getting messy when making our class Supertato model from papier mache. We have attached the story below for you to listen to at home with your child. 

We look forward to sharing photographs of the forthcoming  Welsh Fayre which pupils are busy preparing for. 

Dosbarth Rhymni are having a fantastic time observing all of the changes that Autumn brings this half term with the Context for Learning of 'Seasons Greetings'. It won't be long until we start rehearsing for our Christmas Concert next month, there will be lots of exciting prop design and chances for our pupils to get into character in our school Drama Room. 


We have have a few new faces in Dosbarth Rhymni this term so last half terms context 'My Friends' was a great opportunity for students to get to know each other and settle into the new class routine. 

Remember, there is a host of activities on our blended learning page on the link below if your child is unable to attend school and you would like some home learning ideas.




Pupils in Dobarth Rhymni have been learning all about Wales in their context for Learning titled 'Mae Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau'. They have been having great fun dressing up for World Book Day, Making collages of daffodils and dragons, making a 3D junk model dragon, meeting Fflic a Fflac the Welsh language puppets and making their own Welsh video with the puppets.  Please look out for the pictures and videos that we will be sharing soon with Seesaw.

Hi everyone,

  I hope you are all well. We are very sorry we are unable to celebrate Children in need day with you all. I'm sure you are all dressed up in your lovely outfits from this morning (superheroes or P.J's) I'm enjoying still being in my P.J's but sad i'm not spending the day with you all. I will upload some fun Children in need activities and for you to do at home with your families. I look forward to seeing you all very soon and talking about the activities you took part in. Also feel free to bring into school (when we're able to) all your lovely crafts you have made. Stay safe everyone, see you very soon

Last Tree in the City by Peter Carnavas

Welcome to Dosbarth Rhymni! 

Merry Christmas! 


This term Dosbarth Rhymni have had loads of fun working on activities within the context of 'Twinkle Twinkle'. We learned about religious celebrations of Diwali, Christingle and Christmas. We read lots of stories including Julia Donaldson's 'The Smeds and The Smoos' and 'Puddles the cat and the Christmas Play'.

The children loved wearing animal masks in our stable role play area. They recreated the Nativity story and loved singing 'Away in a manger'.  Not to mention all the fun the children had with glitter! The children will be bringing home lots of Christmas crafts for you to see. We hope you have been able to watch Dosbarth Rhymni's Christmas concert on the one drive using your email and password to log in. The children had so much fun making it we wouldn't want you to miss it! 


If you're looking for activities for your child over the Christmas break or if your child is isolating, don't forget to look at the blended learning page on the website for lots of fantastic activities to try.

Below are attached the activities for the week ahead. Remember to have a look on the school resources page for lots of extra activities you may want to try.  

Hi everyone,

  We hope you are all safe and well. This week i have decided to base the planning on things that fly. Having spent a lot of time in my garden over the past weeks i have enjoyed watching lots of animals and insects exploring my garden. I thought maybe you could explore what animals and insects you can find outside, but remember, try and be quiet and stay still so you don't scare them away. I have made a lovely friend who is a robin red breast, he always joins me in my garden when i'm having my cup of tea in the morning. Have fun being explorers Dosbarth Rhymni!
