Welcome to Dosbarth Celyn. We have had a super first day at school today. All children looked very smart in their school uniform and they all behaved extremely well. Long may it continue!
Thank you parents and children and I look forward to working with you all this academic year.

Learning Logs & Reading
Please encourage and support your child to complete their Learning Log by themselves.
Please listen to your child read as often as possible, preferably every day. Please read to them too. Reading is an essential life skill and the more children read the more confident they become at fluency and accuracy.
Please ensure your child arrives by 8.50 am. If they are ill, please notify school as soon as possible.
Thank you for your continued support and cooperation. I look forward to teaching your child this year and having lots of fun together in year 2.
