Dosbarth St Tathan - Miss Evans

Shwmae and welcome to Dosbarth St Tathan's class page laugh


I am Miss Evans and I will be teaching the lovely year 5s and 6s this year.


Here is a little bit of information about me.
I love to keep fit, especially running and going to the gym!

In my spare time I also enjoy reading books and listening to music. As I was growing up my favourite author was Jacqueline Wilson - you will be sure to find some of her books now in the reading garden!


I hope you enjoy looking around our class page, where you will find lots of exciting and useful information laugh

Language, Literacy and Communication


For the 1st half of spring term we will be focusing on  Elen's Island by Eloise Williams.


The focus will be 'instruction'. We will be developing this skill throughout the first half term of spring by producing some story writing, exploring instructional texts and understanding the features found in an instructional text.


For the 2nd half of spring term we will be looking at the Mabinogion. 

The Mabinogion is a collection of eleven stories from medieval Wales. It contains some of the oldest prose stories in British literature. It is an important part of Welsh heritage and contains many famous tales that have inspired writers such as J.R.R Tolkien and Alan Garner.

The stories were originally written in Middle Welsh- a language spoken in the 12th to 15th centuries in Wales. Since then they have been translated into different languages and made into a book - The Mabinogion. Some of the different texts we will be looking at include; Branwen and the cauldron of rebirth, Luned and the magic ring and The Three Graces.




Some of the Maths work we are doing this half term includes place value of 6 digit numbers, developing our reasoning skills and using all four mathematical operations. Chat with your children to see if they can tell you about how we multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1000 (including decimals! - we are getting so good at it!)
