Miss Holmes - 56HH

Welcome to our class. We are a class of 30 Year 5 and 6 children who are all ready and eager to learn. We are all unique and we respect and recognise our individual strengths and talents within the class.
Our topic is this term is based upon the novel Stormbreaker, written by Anthony Horrowitz. We will be finding out about life as a spy and creating our own burglar alarms. We will be using this book within our English work too.
Class book: Stormbreaker by Anthony Horrowitz.
It is about a teenager called Alex Rider, whom MI6 recruits into its ranks, for his skills as a linguist, scuba diver, sharpshooter and martial artist. All of which are perfect for a career in espionage; his first assignment is to investigate billionaire Darrius Sayle.
Mathematics. The children will be in differentiated groups for maths and taught by either Miss Holmes or Mrs Garton.
Science. Our topic for science this term is Evolution and Inheritance. Amongst other things will be answering the question...Who do you think you are?
Tuesday afternoons. On a Tuesday afternoon the children will have french, music and PE with Madame Allenby, Mr Welsford and Mr Brewin. There will be two sessions each afternoon and these will rotate so that the children will get an even amount of all three subjects.
PE. In addition to Tuesday afternoon PE we will also have PE on a Monday afternoon. It is essential that a full PE kit is in school all week as we may have need to change our day sometimes.
Home learning. This remains a key part of our children’s education this will include; reading comprehension and maths tasks; a creative project every half term and weekly practise and assessment of spellings and times tables.
