5HH 2019 - 2020
Did the Ancient Greeks Change The World?
Welcome to 5HH which is taught by Mrs Hankinson and Mrs Hirst. We like to call ourselves Batman and Robin but we will let you decide which one is which! On this page you can find important information and also an update at the end of the week. First a little bit about us....
Hello everyone! After graduating with a degree in ICT and Education 16 years ago (start guessing my age), I completed a PGCE at MMU and have been teaching ever since. My favourite subject to teach is Art and I quite like maths too, which is funny because it was my worst subject when I was at school. I love my job, not just for those "lightbulb moments" but for the fun and laughs we get to have every day! When I am not teaching, I am looking after my two wonderful children who are 6 and 3, they certainly keep me on my toes! I love to go walking with our black lab, Oscar, travel and having fun with my family. I have thought of three interesting things to tell you about me which you might not know: 1. I have jumped out of an aeroplane! 2. I have heli-hiked on top of a glacier in New Zealand. 3. I am really interested in extreme weather.
- PE is taught on a Wednesday and a Thursday; however, the children will need to keep their PE kit in school as occasionally the timetable can change.
- Every Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday the children will be taught by Mrs Hankinson.
- On a Thursday and Friday, the children will be taught by Mrs Hirst.
- Drumming is on a Thursday.
- Times tables tests will take place on a Thursday.
- Spelling tests will take place on a Friday and new spellings will be given out at the same time.
- We would like each child to read their Accelerated Reader book for 20 mins at least 5 times per week.
Week ending 29.11.19
Well done to Nadia and Cameron for being our respective Star and Drummer of the week this week!
In English we have looked at the demise of different fairy-tale characters and have analysed the ending of our class book in detail. The children have written short paragraphs focusing on character and setting descriptions and next week will be writing an alternative ending to the story. This will allow them to show us what they have learnt over the past few weeks and we are looking forward to finding out what happens to the Witch in the children’s stories!
In maths, we have continued our work on division using regrouping and the bus stop method. Please continue to encourage your child to play on TT Rockstar in order to improve the speed and fluency of their recall facts. They will continue to need these skills as we move onto more tricky division calculations and word problems next week.
In the afternoons the pupils have enjoyed; sketching an Ancient Greek building in art, performing unison and cannon sequences using equipment in gym, exploring irreversible changes in science, drumming with Mr Proctor and working on their Website in ICT. We are also starting to prepare for our Christmas production and hope as many of you as possible will be able to join us at St. Mary’s Church in a couple of weeks’ time.
Finally, a huge thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas fair – we hope you had a lovely time and are now in the Christmas spirit.
Please remember to bring your PE kit in on Wednesday and Thursday next week and to keep working hard on those tricky spellings! Well done 5HH.
