About Our Class

Welcome to Dosbarth Oxwich. We believe that learning should be fun, practical and relevant. I want the children in my care to feel safe, heard and valued.

You only get one chance at a Primary education so this needs to be challenging and exciting.

Big Questions for the Year 2024- 2025

Special Projects/Events:

Class Routines

Thursday we have P.E. – please wear P.E. kit to school. 

Every day, please make sure you have a named water bottle and healthy snack. 

Children are encouraged to develop their independence and change their reading books as and when they need to. 

Classroom Expectations

Good behaviour is essential in any community and at Oystermouth Primary School we have high expectations for this. The school community abides by the Oystermouth Way:

  • Be ready
  • Be safe
  • Be respectful

The Oystermouth Way covers all areas of school life and is exemplified by everyone.

These are rewarded by Dojo points, allowing children to buy different things as physical reward.

Class Rules:

We have a class charter linked to the UNCRC. They change each year but the central ideas are:

  • Treat each other with kindness and respect.
  • Be the best version of you that you can be.
  • Opportunity is not a lengthy visitor, take them when they arise.


  • Homework Menu is sent our every term.
  • Maths tasks are on MyMaths and TT Rockstars.
  • Weekly spelling tests with new differentiated spellings linked to ability.
  • Daily reading
