Autumn term 1 - Dyma Fi!

Our first topic is 'Dyma Fi!' In this topic we will look at all things about us, the human body and even some Welsh history and artists! It is an action packed topic and a great way for us teachers to get to know the pupils. 


Autumn term 2 / Spring term 1 - Children of Conflict 

Dosbarth Coch's second topic is 'Children of Conflict' - During this topic we look at how children are affected during a range of different conflicts. We will look at evacuees, global warming, the rights of a child and how we can solve/prevent conflicts between friends. It is a broad topic but will be a lot of fun for pupils!
