Dosbarth Oren (Y6)

Croeso i'r Dosbarth Oren! 

Welcome to our year six class page! Your class teachers this year are Miss Thompson (Mon, Tues, Wed, Fri) and Mrs Hyde. Mrs Bryant will also be working with our class. We are really looking forward to lots of exciting learning experiences this year and all the opportunities that a year six class have.

Our School Day

You need to arrive in school between 8.35-8.45am every morning, ready for the day ahead. Assembly starts at 9am every day and some of year six are responsible for preparing for assembly.

10.30-10.50am is morning break.

12.30-1.10pm is lunchtime.

3pm is hometime.

Arriving on time and attending every day is really important in year six, and will help prepare you for high school next year.
