Learning Together, Inspired Forever

Year 4 Mars

Croeso i Ddosbarth Mars, Blwyddyn Pedwar.


Mrs Jessica Stevens -class teacher, and

Mrs Tammy Williams-teaching assistant would like to welcome you to our class page.


Hello! We are Dosbarth Mars and we would like to say Croeso i ein dosbarth ni- Welcome to our class! Thank you for visiting our class page. Here you will find out a little more about us and what the year ahead will bring for you and your child.

Who are we?

First and foremost, let us introduce ourselves… I am Mrs Stevens and I have taught at Pentre’r Graig  for 20 years!! I have taught across both Key stages during that time and I am also the Assistant Headteacher of our School.

My name is Mrs Williams and I have worked at our school for the last 6 years.

Our Class Ethos

We want every child in our class to enjoy school, feeling safe, respected,  and  a valued member of our class team. It is our belief that learning should be fun, relevant and engaging where the child is central to the learning process. As such we will involve the children in our day to day routines and curriculum planning. We would also like to invite you to be part of your child’s learning journey through input into our curriculum planning too and involvement via homework projects and celebration days held in school.

This relationship between home and school is essential to the support and development of your child. We have an open door policy where parents are welcome to make appointments throughout the school year to discuss matters relating to their child. We also use Class Dojo for regular, up to date communication. 

We are very much looking forward to our topics this year and our learning will be thematic ensuring that the children develop a wide range of skills through a broad, balanced and rich curriculum.  To further enhance our curriculum, school trips linked to our topics will form a staple part of your child’s learning  experiences. We also offer your children the amazing opportunity to attend a three day residential in Borfa House, Port Eynon.  This will be a fantastic opportunity to develop their personal and social skills and develop those team relationships and values which we strongly believe allow each child to push themselves to achieve their full potential and a safe and secure learning environment.

Ensuring our children are healthy and well will always be our priority. Your child will have weekly PE team sports  (Monday) and outdoor learning (Friday ) sessions which are also supplemented with dance/gymnastics as required.  Our school also takes part in the ‘Daily Mile’ where we take additional exercise each day endeavouring to run, walk, skip or jump a mile a day! The development and nurturing of the whole child is important to us, we will deliver lessons which focus on the personal development of qualities and beliefs with the children to further help them grow into well rounded , empathic citizens of the future.

We hope this page has given you a flavour of who we are and what your child’s school experiences will involve . If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Together everyone achieves more!

Mrs Stevens & Mrs Williams

Autumn 2023- Summer 2024 Curriculum Overviews:


Please find attached a copy of our curriculum overview for the term that encompasses each of the six areas of learning in Dosbarth Mars. Your child will be studying the expressive arts, health and well-being, humanities, languages, literacy and communication, mathematics and numeracy and science & technology during the term. You will also find below a guide for parents and carers on the new Curriculum for Wales which became statutory Autumn 2022.  It explains the four core purposes which are at the heart of the new curriculum.  You will see how our overview embodies the new curriculum and how it allows the children to develop their skills in a cross curricular, relevant manner.

Reading at home and in school is fundamental to your child's fluency and confidence in their reading.  We thank you in advance for your support in helping your child read at home through both listening to your child and also reading to your child.





Throughout the school week, we use Hwb on a regular basis.

We encourage children to practise logging into their account at home to develop confidence and independence in doing so. Hwb can be accessed at home at and has lots of great tools and activities to support your child’s learning.
