Welcome to Class 5 2019/2020. The Class Teacher is Miss Breheny and there are currently 29 pupils in this class. This class is supported by Mrs Hird.
My name is Miss Breheny and I am a Year 5 teacher at Consett Junior school. Although I only started teaching here at the end of last year, I have been a teacher for 7 years and I have taught in most Key Stage 2 classes. In my spare time I love to keep active by doing a range of sports and activities and particularly enjoy playing netball and going to gym classes.
About Class 5
I am really looking forward to starting my first full year at Consett Junior School. There are 29 children in the class, which include some new starters to the school, but I know everyone will make them feel incredibly welcome.
This half term we are going to be reading Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce. This is a fantastic book which will allow us to really use our imaginations and write some creative pieces of work whilst also facilitating us to learn and apply new grammar terminology to help improve our writing. I can’t wait for you all to read this light-hearted and gripping book.
In maths we are going to be using The White Rose to simultaneously teach fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills across the year 5 curriculum objectives.
In the first half term we are going to be settling in to the new school year by taking an in-depth look at place value. This block includes: reading and writing 6 digit numbers, comparing and ordering numbers, rounding, Roman numerals and negative numbers.
Our topics for this half term are:
Science – Space
History – Anglo Saxons
Art – TBC
French – Getting to know me
RE – Sikhism
PE: Tag Rugby and OAA. This year PE will be every Monday and Friday afternoon. For this half term, outdoor PE kit will be needed for both sessions.
