Welcome to Dosbarth Aur.
Diane Llewellyn and Donna Thomas teach this Foundation Phase class, supported by 2 full time experienced and enthusiastic teaching assistants, Lisa and Leanne,and 2 part time dedicated teaching assistants Claire and Karen. Together they form an effective and efficient classroom where children are happy and motivated.
The Foundation Phase is the statutory curriculum for all 3 to 7 year olds in Wales. It encourages children to be creative, imaginative and makes learning more enjoyable and more effective.
Classes enter the Foundation Phase in the Nursery and leave at the end of Year 2. (Pinc, Aur and Melyn)
Children will be given opportunities to explore the world around them and understand how things work by taking part in practical activities relevant to their developmental stage. They will be challenged through practical activities and develop their thinking with open-ended questions. Children will be encouraged to explore concepts and share ideas for solving problems.
