Totally believe that someone has your back,
 

Reliable to give you a Hope that you may lack.

Unquenchable responsibility to all that you hold dear,

Staying with you when all else doesn't remain near.

Turn to His ways not to lean on our understanding.

 

Trust is a feeling that somebody or something can be relied upon or will turn out to be good. It is the feeling of being sure about something, even if it cannot be proved.

 

For Dosbarth Ely, trust may be relying on a friend to help them with work or with a problem on the yard, knowing that the teacher will be there to help them or trusting in their own work and decisions in order to gain independence and self-belief.

 

The four purposes are that all children and young people will be:

  • Ambitious, capable learners who are ready to learn throughout their lives.
  • Enterprising, creative contributors who are ready to play a full part in life and work.
  • Ethical, informed citizens who are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world.
  • Healthy, confident individuals who are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.

 

In Dosbarth Ely, we will start to look at each aspect of teaching and learning and how it will support us in becoming Ambitious, Capable Learners; Enterprising, Creative Contributors; Ethical, informed citizens and Healthy, Confident Individuals.

 

Our starting point in the Autumn Term will be taking apart each of the Four Core Purposes and asking the learners what it means to them. What does it mean to be ambitious? What does creative mean? Am I a citizen? How can I be more confident?

 

At St David's we use a scheme called 'Read, Write, Inc' to teach children how to read and write. Below are the letter sounds we will use during our phonic sessions.
