5HM 2021 - 2022
Welcome to 5HM!
We are really excited about the wonderful year we are going to have and all the amazing learning and activities we are going to do.
Mrs Hankinson will be teaching the class on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (with Mr Mason supporting in some sessions) and Mr Mason will be teaching on Thursday and Friday. We are also really lucky to have Mrs Badger and Mrs Robson supporting in our class during some sessions.
- PE will be on a Tuesday and Thursday. While we are in the hall, please come to school in your kit. We will remind you to bring it back to school when we return to our normal class.
- Please bring a clean, clearly labelled water bottle to school each day. No juice please.
- Please remember to bring your i-pad to school each day fully charged. This is really important as we use the i-pads for learning activities every day.
- Please bring a raincoat to school each day. We will try to get outside as much as possible, even in light rain so come prepared!
- No jewellery please apart from plain studs which must be removed or taped for PE. Hair must also be tied back for PE.
Hello everyone! After graduating with a degree in ICT and Education 19 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 8 and 5, they certainly keep me on my toes! I love to go walking with our black lab, Oscar, travelling to new places 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 gardening!
Weekly Update: (w.b 13.09.2021)
We have had a lovely week in Year 5, the children have adapted quickly to working in our temporary classroom. Myself, Mrs Hankinson and Mr Mason have been very impressed with all their hard work and this week and we all look forward to seeing them grow and progress in the coming weeks.
In Maths this week, we have been learning how to read, write, compare, order and spot patterns in numbers up to 1,000,000. The children particularly enjoyed the place value dice game with a partner. The children had to take it in turns to roll a dice and see which partner could create the largest 6-digit number. Next week in Maths, we will be comparing and solving problems using numbers up to 1,000,000. We hope to begin our next unit of work 'addition and subtraction' before the end of next week.
In English, we have started reading our new Pathways to Write book 'Queen of the Falls by Chris Van Allsburg'. The children have used some wonderful descriptive vocabulary to write a post card home to a friend describing what it would be like to visit Niagara Falls. We have also completed a character study for Annie Edson Taylor the daredevil of our story. Next week we will be focusing on securing the children’s sentence structure and we will be writing letters in role.
This week, homework sheets and spellings have been set. These are at the top of this class page and also on Showbie. We would like the children to use Showbie to share their homework with us this term. If any paper or resources are needed, please just ask.
