In Dosbarth Glas, we continue to build on the foundational learning skills which our children have achieved in their prior learning. We foster a positive environment where the children are encouraged to grow in confidence and try things out with a ‘have a go’ mentality, which enables them to make progress. Regular mini bus trips have allowed us to explore parts of Cardiff which are new to many, and to experience the outdoors in different settings.
The learning which takes place in the class is tailored to the differing needs of the children and includes whole class teaching, small group work as well as independent tasks. The curriculum is presented so that our children will grow both in confidence and skills and keeps in mind the Four Purposes of the new Curriculum for Wales:
that they will become ambitious, capable learners who are ready to learn throughout their lives; enterprising, creative contributors who are ready to play a full part in life and work; ethical, informed citizens who are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world; healthy, confident individuals who are ready to live fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
Many of the children have speech and language delay. We work closely with the Speech and Language therapist putting in place their therapy goals and helping to practice and extend their communication skills, including using Communication Aids as required.
