Years 3 & 4: Dyfrdwy

Blywddyn Newydd Dda! ( Even though it seems like a lifetime ago now.) 

This term in Dyfrdwy class our theme is ‘Cynefin’ and we’re asking and exploring the question: “Who do we belong to?” We’ll be learning about the history of Llay and Wales, focusing on mining; exploring the habitats which are home to wildlife here in Wales before comparing them to other habitats; celebrating festivals important to pupils in our class, such as Ramadan; how to look after ourselves in terms of personal hygiene and how we belong to Wrexham and feeling proud of our Welsh heritage. 

In Maths we’ll be learning how to add and subtract numbers using re-grouping. Then exploring money; recognising coins, finding totals and calculating change. Our aim in Language this term is to write an explanation text, using features such as adverbs of time and conjunctions such as; because, therefore, so etc. 

The Welsh phrases we’ll be using this term are: 

Bore da – good morning 

Prynhawn da – good afternoon 

Sut wyt ti? – how are you? 

Ga i… – may I have a…. 

Enw -name 

Oed – age 

Lliw gwallt- hair colour 

Teulu- family 

Ffaith- fact 

To support your child at home, you can: 

•Listen to your child read over the weekend when RWI books are brought home. 

•Practise 2, 5 and 10 times tables.  

•Discuss the idea of ‘belonging’, for example, who belongs in your family? Do they belong to any clubs or groups?
