5HF 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 5HF's class page!
Mrs Hirst and Mrs Furlong are the double act for 5HF! We have both been teaching for many years and have lots of experience especially in upper KS2. Mrs Hirst is the school SENCo and Mrs Furlong is the maths lead.
This year we are really looking forward to having lots of fun. We are kicking off the year with the Ancient Greeks.
For your information:
PE days are Thursday and Friday
Spelling test is Friday
Times Table tests are on Thursday
Homework will be using the choices sheet, plus some additional English and Maths as required.
The children have been brilliant again. We both love the class - they try so hard at absolutely everything. In English we have been carrying out research to help the children to write a non-chronological report based this time on the Egyptians. The report is closely based on the one we have learned about the Incas and will help the children to get a better structure to their written work. In maths, we continue to work on large numbers: exploring sequences and rounding numbers to the nearest 10,000. They loved the challenge on Wednesday where they had to find hidden sequences in a hexagon pattern!
In the afternoons we continued lots of topic work where the children researched and sketched Ancient Greek buildings. They are now keen to explore a variety of structures. Lots of questions have been asked about the purpose of a triangular roof: are they for rain to fall off; are they to make the building taller for the gods; or is a triangle a strong structre? We shall explore these ideas next week in a practical way.
Finally, a huge well done this week to Madeline for being our 'Drummer of the week' and Poppy and Sammy for being our 'Star of the week'.
Your child has bought home spellings and a topic homework sheet this weekend so you have some activities to get started on. Thank you for your support and please feel free to catch us at the end of the day if you have any questions or concerns.
