Dosbarth Silver Birch

Welcome to Dosbarth Silver Birch!

We are a class of Year 1 and 2 children. I am Mrs Lines and we are supported by Mrs Beddows, Miss Arthur and Mrs H-C

Our Topics

This term our topic is ‘Journeys’ and we will learn many new and exciting things. We will be focusing on different modes of transport and different Journeys we can take around the world.

In Welsh, we will continue to work on the language patterns for the weather, numbers, asking for items, expressing likes and dislikes and prepositions. We will be looking at extending and expanding your children’s current language patterns.

In Literacy, we will be looking at writing the sounds we hear in words, spelling patterns, sentence structure and grammar, we will be writing imaginative stories and non-fiction pieces. This term we are looking at the story ‘Journey' by Aaron Becker, the children will create their own stories imagining where there own red door would take them! 

In Maths learning will include addition and subtraction, odd and even numbers, data handling, money and time. 

Physical Development

PE sessions are on alternate Wednesdays and every Thursday. Children will need to come to school wearing a white t-shirt, black/navy shorts or joggers, a jacket and trainers. Please ensure that all clothing has your child’s name on it. 

Forest Schools

Forest school sessions are on alternate Wednesdays. Please see letter for required uniform. 


Reading is a gift for life. Please encourage your child to develop a love of reading through sharing and talking about books, comics and magazines that interest them. A new book will come home every Friday in a named wallet and to be returned on a Tuesday. Please listen to your child read as often as possible.


Our school is part of the Healthy Schools Initiative. Please support our school and ensure that your child has a healthy snack every day for morning break e.g fruit or veg. Also please provide a named bottle of water, free milk is available for all children. 


Please ensure that all clothing has your child’s name on it.  

We are looking forward to getting to know and building positive relationships with yourself and your child this year, if you should have any questions please feel free to come and speak to us or send a message via Seesaw - Our door is always open.

Thank you for your continued support,  we are excited to join your child on their learning journey.
