Croeso i Dosbarth 7!
Welcome to Class 7!
Teachers: Mrs Dolan & Mrs Parkes
Thank you for visiting Class 7's web page! Here you'll find some information about our class.
Welcome to the Autumn term!
We had a letter from an explorer called Santiago all the way from the Amazon Rainforest. He asked the children what they know about the Rainforest and what they would like to learn. Pupil voice steers our plans each week, the first few weeks the children have asked to learn about Rainforest animals!
The children will be set homework on Class Dojo on a Friday. Children can upload their work to their portfolio and receive 5 dojos! Please ask the class teacher if you need support with Class Dojo or any homework given. We are happy to help! If you want to do more homework and practice more than what is on Class Dojo, go for it! Here are some ways you can do more!
Mathsframe- is a website that can be used at home. It will help support the children's maths through the use of lots fun games. The login details are below.
We are hoping to send reading books home again very soon but in the meantime please remember you can access a huge variety of books on Oxford Owl. The children should know what stage they are on in Oxford Reading Tree or colour in Guided Group Reading, if not please message us on Dojo and we will let you know. The login details are below.

Top tips to support your child's reading
- Tell each other stories.
- Chat about the things that you have read.
- Talk about pictures in books.
- Share stories even when you don’t have a book in front of you. Why not re-tell your favourite stories?
- Bedtime is the perfect time to read together. It helps create a routine and can make going to bed something your child looks forward to.
Ask questions when you are reading together. For example:
- What do you see on this page?
- How do you think the characters feel?
- What do you think is going to happen next?
When you have finished, talk about how your child feels about the book:
- What did they like?
- What didn’t they like?
- What can they remember about what happened?
- Who was their favourite character? Why?
- Link the story to their own experiences.
- Can they remember when they did something similar? Most importantly, have fun!
Outdoor missions and PE
On a Thursday afternoon we have our indoor and outdoor Missions. During pupil voice sessions the children will let us know what they would like to learn about in our Missions!
PE for this term is focused on teamwork and team sports. We aim to do PE on a Friday so can all children wear trainers to school and if you would like something comfortable and suitable for PE. If the weather for Fridays doesn't look good we may change it throughout the week and will let you know on Class Dojo in advance.
In KS2 we use Dojo points as rewards for all sorts of things, at the end of the week the dojo point champion is awarded a certificate. We also have a Helpwr Heddiw certificate for children who are speaking Welsh and a VIP who is chosen at the end of the week.
You can follow us on Twitter @BadenPowellPS
This term our Welsh focus is Joio yn yr Haul a'r Glaw (Enjoying in the Sun and Rain)
We have daily Helpwr Heddiw sessions where we play games that drill Welsh language patterns!
Snack & Lunch
Please continue to provide your child with a healthy snack e.g. fruit, vegetables, yogurt, crackers etc. Please ensure children's lunch boxes are full of lots of healthy goodness too😊
Children are more alert and focused when they’re fuelled with healthy food. Higher levels of sustained concentration mean that kids can more readily retain information and therefore learn.
We are super excited for Year 3 and look forward to working with you in providing the best experiences this year! 👏😁
