5HH 2020 - 2021
Where will my wellies take me?
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.

2nd June 2020
Welcome back! We hope you managed to have a fun, relaxing break enjoying the sunshine and that you are all keeping well. As before the half term break, we will be uploading a Maths and English lesson daily which will be based on the work we would have been doing in school. There will also be some activities for Geography, Science and Art uploaded at different times. We are both in school from now on so Mrs Casey will be leading the online learning for Year 5 and responding to any questions you may have during the day. Please do not worry about how much you are able to do, we understand that circumstances are very different for every family at the moment, as they are for us and as long as you are all happy and healthy then that is the most important thing. It has also been lovely to receive different communication from you, we do like to know you are ok! Remember we are still here for you if you need us or you would just like to say hi! You can also contact us at school if you need to. We do love to see what you have been up to.
Stay safe and stay well.
Please keep in touch, we love to hear from you!
Mrs Hankinson and Mrs Hirst
