Welcome to Dosbarth Castell Brecon

Welcome to our Year 4 class! I hope you all had an enjoyable summer and have now settled in to the new term. Here is some information which you will hopefully find useful.

We have lots of fun planned for this year. Our topic this term is Victorians.

We will also be linking with our partnership school in Spain for the first part of the term. If you have any questions during the year, please get in touch with me through the school office. I look forward to working with you all this year.



Monday (outdoor)

Thursday (indoor)


The indoor P.E. kit that your child needs is:

t-shirt and shorts

The outdoor P.E. kit that your child needs is:

Trainers/daps, jogging bottoms, T-shirt and in the winter, a jumper.

Please make sure that your child brings their kit every week. If your child wears earrings it would be helpful if they did not wear them on P.E. days.



Our reading scheme at St James Primary is Bug Club reading. Log in details have been sent home. Please ensure you read with your child as much as you can. The school code is ydth and the password is Brecon.


Water bottles

We encourage children to bring water bottles to school as it is important to keep hydrated. Children have access to these throughout the day. Please provide your child with a bottle with their name on. We do not allow squash – just plain water please!


Fruit Tuck

Fruit tuck can be purchased during morning break and is 20p a day.



Please help us by ensuring that all uniform, PE kits and coats have your child’s full name clearly written on them.



We will be using the outdoors a lot for our learning this year - whatever the weather! Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather each day and if you have a spare pair of wellies that you can leave in school they would be useful.
