I have lived in the Durham area all my life and graduated from Durham University in 2016. Since I graduated, I have worked in both KS1 and KS2 settings until I started at Consett Junior School in February 2018.This year will be my first year full time teaching with my own class, and I cannot wait for lies ahead in Class 5. I’m looking forward to teaching the class this year.
About Class 5
In Literacy we have been reading Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. We have been and will continue to use our year 3 and 4 skills to help us write some amazing pieces of work. We have really enjoyed looking at the links so far made to Ancient Greece (our History topic) and how they have been used in the book.
In numeracy we will be spending the first few weeks practising our times tables and learning all about Place Value. This is something we do at the start of every year, so far we have learnt about the symbols used for greater than and less then. We have also been learning to order numbers up to 1 million! Very soon we will be looking at the long method for multiplication as we are experts at the grid method, so it’s time to spread our wings and learn some ways to solve problems. Each week Mrs. Gilray does Times Tables practice on a Wednesday afternoon to sharpen those skills so all pupils begin to develop rapid recall.
We are doing lots of exciting and new things in our topic work this year. In RE we are learning all about Sikhism. So far we have learnt that of the main religions, it is the newest. In History we are learning about Ancient Greece. We have looked so far at the Gods and Goddesses and the Battle of Marathon and the story of the Trojan Horse. Some of the other exciting topics we are covering are listed below:
- Art- Pop Art and Ancient Greek Pottery
- Geography- We will be finding out about all of the biggest mountain ranges in the world
- PE- Indoor P.E (Tuesday) and Outdoor P.E (Wednesday)
- French- By the end of this term we will be experts at talking about ourselves- in French
