Shwmae! Mr Thomas Ydw i.

I am the class teacher for Dosbarth 6! I have worked in the school for over 16 years but have never worked in the infants and I am really excited to get started. I love all sports and really enjoy cycling and going for walks!

I enjoy reading books, watching films and playing on my console. My favourites are: Matthew Reilly books; Marvel Films; and FIFA!

Hwyl Fawr!

Shwmae, Mrs Cooper ydw i. I have been an L.S.A for 10 years.

Working with Mr Barnett had previously been my best experience in the school but now I am working with Mr. Thomas and he is amazing!

I absolutely love working with children and my own children even come to this school.

In my spare time I enjoy going to the cinema, the ice hockey, socialising with friends and spending time with my family. My favourite thing in the world though is Harry Potter!! Expecto Patronum!

# Talk for writing

This term our story is Cat, Bramble and Heron. Every day we practise learning parts of the story using a text map and physical actions developed by our class. Every day we build on our knowledge of the story by learning the next sentence and over the term each individual becomes more confident at retelling the story orally.

"Children who are read to at home, or who come from an oral tradition of storytelling, embed such patterns without really knowing it, as if some form of linguistic osmosis was at work. At this early stage, it is significant that the child is ‘hearing’ the language. This matters because we learn language by hearing it and then by saying it. So, storytelling and rhyme chanting are powerful aspects of acquiring language patterns that might not be met in everyday talk." Pie Corbett 2008.
