Dosbarth Hebron

Class Information

Croeso I Dosbarth Hebron! Mrs Williams & Mrs Humphreys ydw i.

I’m Mrs Williams and have been a teacher at St. Helen’s for almost 20 years now and am one of the school Mental Health First Aiders as well as being part of the Health and Wellbeing team.

I am a Mum to three children (and a cute but mischievous dog Bella!) and spend lots of family time with them whenever possible.  When I am not teaching I enjoy going for long walks, I especially love the seaside and think that we are very lucky to have beautiful beaches in Barry.

Hebron is a mixed class Year 4 & 5 children. Many of us enjoy a variety of hobbies and sports in our spare time such as karate, gymnastics, swimming, football and many more. We enjoy coming to school and learning new things. We pride ourselves on being a resilient class, always willing to have a go even when things are a bit tricky, we are ready to face the challenges ahead of us. We also hold high the qualities of being a kind, caring and polite class, united in helping one another to reach our goals. It’s always busy in Hebron as we have high expectations of ourselves and try hard to produce work to be proud of but it’s also a place to have fun too.

We are looking forward to our journey ahead together into Year 4&5.
