5HH 2019 - 2020
Vikings: Heroes or Villains?
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 20.3.20
Well, what a strange end to the week. We would like you to know that we are here for all of you if you need us and we hope that you all stay safe and well. Do as much as you can each day but please also make time for your own wellbeing. Get outside when you can, feel the Spring sunshine on your face, notice the flowers starting to grow, the birds singing and building their nests. Take excersise whenever you can, I will be joining you in Joe Wicks PE session at 9am every day either from home or school, draw, paint, bake, help whoever looks after you with some DIY, gardening, house work.
We would also like you to think of all the work we have done on My Happy Mind so far, remember to practise your Happy Breathing. Think about your character strengths, you might need to use them and you might need to work on some others (tolerance and perseverance towards others will be one of ours)! Try to keep a positive journal of words or pictures of things we are thankful for.
Please keep in touch, we love to hear from you!
Mrs Hankinson and Mrs Hirst
