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....

Mrs Hankinson

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.

Week ending 08.11.19


What a great first week back we have had! In English, we have started our new unit which means a new picture book.  This half term we are focussing on ‘The Lost Happy Endings’ by Carol Ann Duffy.  We have discussed the features of traditional tales and the typical characters you might find.  We have also completed a ‘cold write’ of a traditional tale that we know.

In Maths, our current focus is on multiplication.  We have been studying what happens when we multiply by 10, 100 and 1000 and we have done this through the context of converting between different units of measure.  We have also looked at the associative law of multiplication where we can change the multiplier and multiplicand and still have the same product.  This helps to make calculations easier to solve.  E.g.

At the end of the week, we looked at how to use the formal written method to multiply a 3-digit number by a 1-digit number.

In our topic lesson, we completed our designs for our Olympic torches and started to make them.  These will be completed next week.

In Science, we set talked about soluble and insoluble and set up an investigation as to whether it is possible to recover a solid once it has dissolved using evaporation.

In Computing, we continued to prepare for our Ancient Greek websites.  This week, we created a site map to help us to organise the information we will be displaying on our webpages.

In RE, we have continued to study how Christians see God.  We have discussed some of the artwork that has been created and the children have expressed some of their own views about religion.

In French, we have recapped how to express our feelings and also learnt a song.
