We are a mixed class of 11 pupils from year 5 and 6. Our class teacher is Miss Mahoney and we are very lucky to be supported by both Miss Gomes and Miss Heslop.
In class 5 we work hard to develop a calm and positive environment where everybody feels safe, happy and can learn in a way that suits their needs.
To contact Miss Gomes or Miss Heslop, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Our topic upon returning in September will be Gratitude where we will focus on being thankful for all kinds of things.
Upon our first day back, we will be completing a day filled with activities, known as Launch Day. These activities will challenge pupils whilst also allowing pupils to rediscover some of their creative skills.
This half term will be the first time in a few months that all pupils are back in class and so our school day will be slightly different to help us all settle back in to school life. During the day we will be doing lots of active learning, focusing mainly on our social, emotional and mental health. We will be doing lots of learning around keeping safe, keeping healthy and looking after ourselves and each other.
Every Tuesday, class 5 will be attending Forest School for the whole day. Pupils will be completing a variety of activities whilst in the forest from playing in the mud kitchen to using the swing, cutting and carving wood and learning how to make a fire in a safe way. Pupils will be supplied with snack and lunch whilst at Forest School and will even have the option of a little hot chocolate to keep them warm.
Our learning for this half terms will be based around the effects COVID 19 had on the whole world, we will be looking at pandemics and discussing how we felt and how COVID 19 effected people of all backgrounds.
We will also be learning about Black Lives Matter and the movement that has surrounded the news of recent. We will be understanding the importance of the movement, why it is happening and how we can make a difference for our future.
Chloe will return to Hope School in September and will continue to teach class five Aerial ninjas by focusing on the work they have already done on the silks and hoops in the past, whilst also teaching them some new and exciting tricks and skills. Chloe will also be working through yoga and circuits to focus on their fitness and stamina and build on their core strength.
Homework will be given out at the start of every half term. Pupils and parents are encouraged to work together to complete at least one task each week and return it to school.
It is also very important that we read at home with our parents and carers 3 times a week to help us make as much progress as possible.
Please make sure all of our reading is recorded in our reading records every time we read - our teachers love to hear how well we are doing at home!
