Dosbarth Hazel- Mrs Barnett

Spring term 2022

                                             Welcome back everyone! 

Wishing you a happy and healthy new year! We hope you had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed spending time with your family. 


Immersion Day - Monday 10th January. 

Our whole school topic this term is ' Let's explore '.

We will be exploring 'Farm life' 

We will be having an immersion day on Monday to launch our exciting new topic. 

Please can children come to school dressed as a farmer - you don't need to go out and buy anything for this simply get creative with things you already have at home. 

Here are some ideas for you:

A check shirt


 Wear a cap 

Thank you for your continued support. 

Mrs Barnett and Ms Di Mauro



Exploring Farm Life πŸ„πŸ·πŸ‘

Science - We made butter!


Dosbarth Hazel designed a farmyard scene. We investigated different ways of getting the animals to stand up.

We loved dressing up as farmers.

Autumn Term 2021

Friday October 15th will be Diwrnod Shwmae!

Children can wear Welsh colours/rugby tops etc. Year 6, Criw Cymraeg are planning activities for each class. They will be doing games, reading and singing with the infant children.


A big warm welcome to the children who are in Dosbarth Hazel this year. Ms DiMauro and I are looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you. We hope you are all ready to work hard and have lots of fun in our happy, caring class. 


We also look forward to working closely  with our parents in order to support each and every pupil to reach their full potential. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me by email if you have any questions/concerns or positive feedback about your child - Mrs 


​​​​​​Thank you 

Mrs Barnett and Ms Di Mauro πŸ˜Šβ€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹β€‹




First week in Dosbarth Hazel. 

All of the children settled well in their new class this week😊😊

The children  responded well to new routines and were pleased to meet their new teacher and catch up with their friends. 

The children had fun exploring their new environment and were happy, enthusiastic learners.  

A fun week was had by all and I look forward to seeing you all again next week!! 


To start the year the whole school has been given the Topic ‘This is me!’ which will give us the chance to look at ‘what makes me a me’ as well as appreciate what makes us different from our friends.  


A few reminders

Please could all children put their  fruit and drinks on the trolley as they come through the door in the morning.

Please could all clothing, bags, fruit pots and drinks be clearly labelled with your child's name.

Please could you encourage your child to be able to do up their own coat.

Easter arrangementsπŸ£πŸ‡πŸ£

Unfortunately due to the current restrictions we will not be able to hold our traditional Easter Bonnet Parades in the school this year. We have decided instead that this year all Easter activities will take place in school, including any hats/headbands the children may make. This is to reduce the amount of things being brought into school from home as recommended by the Local Authority.

Friday 19th March is Red Nose DayπŸŽ‰

This year the theme is "Share a Smile" 😊

In an attempt to keep everyone safe we have decided not to let the children wear bought "red noses" this year to reduce the risk of them sharing or mixing them up. You can "paint" their noses if you wish. 

We are encouraging the children to wear brightly coloured clothes(the brighter the better) to symbolise rainbows 🌈and to share their favourite jokes with the class to help'Share a Smile'. We are also asking for a donation of 50p if possible to support Comic Relief. 


A big "Thank you " to Llantrisant Howdens for their generous donation.πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Welcome back!

It was lovely to see happy, smiley children returning to school this week. When the children were asked to describe how they felt about being back, they used words such as awesome, happy, cool and excited.

    Welcome back after a long break. It was lovely to meet my new class and see everyone safe and sound back in school.  This term our topic will be ‘What matters to me’. We will be exploring well-being and relationships through stories.
    We have lots of exciting activities lined up. To keep you informed we will be using our class page on the Llwyncrwn website. We will be putting class photographs on in regular intervals. I’m sure you enjoy chatting to your children about school, so please take every opportunity to browse our page at your leisure.



On this page you will find key information about our curriculum and our classroom. We will also be sharing some of our learning with you so please look at this page regularly to see what is new. Diolch!
