Croeso i Dosbarth Enfys!
WELCOME TO HOME LEARNING!
A big hello to everyone in Dosbarth Enfys. I am really missing all of the children. I hope you are all well and safe with your lovely families. Remember to look after each other!
Over the next few weeks I will update this web page with ideas that you could use at home. Remember at school our activities are short, approx 20 minutes. It is important that your child is happy especially at this very difficult time.
I hope that you are enjoying the home learning packs that were sent home. If you would like to share any of this work with me, I would love to see it! Send a photo to my e-mail address, at
I would love to hear from you!
Phonics - letters and sounds
Keep re-visiting our sounds that we have learnt in school. Use your sound mats in your home learning packs. You could do the following:
Sing the jolly phonic sound songs - https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2wpdvv
Play eye spy - What can you find in your home and garden that begins with.....?
Practise writing the letters - How about using water and a paintbrush outside? Use chalks, paints, pencils. Use shaving foam in a tray and write letters with your fingers.
Sing the alphabet song and learn the names of the letters - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75p-N9YKqNo
This is a fantastic resource to use with links to games and resources to print off. We use it regularly in school. We are using Phase 2 and Phase 3 resources.
Use the following songs to help you to practise your counting skills.

We all love dough disco in Dosbarth Enfys! This is a fun activity to do at home! I have included a simple recipe to make your own play dough at home. Why not give it a go!!! It helps to strengthen those finger muscles ready for writing.
This is the recipe we use in school.
