Hobby – Miss Grant (Year 5/6)

Welcome to Hobby Class



Hello and welcome to Spring term in Hobby class. 

It has been wonderful to have all the children back in the classroom. They have all settled back brilliantly. 


Our topic this term is 'Alien Invasion' with a focus on Space. We have begun learning about the different planets in the solar system and are incorporating our space topic into many of our lessons including Art where we are experimenting with different mediums such as chalks, water colour and oil/water marbling to create  different planets. (pictures to follow!)


Our day for P.E this term is Monday. Please could children come into school in their P.E kit. This term we are practising our hockey skills.


Outdoor learning is on a Thursday. Please could children come into school wearing old clothes that they don't mind getting dirty as we will be outside in all weather! Please could they also bring in wellies if they have them or a change of footwear for indoors/outdoors.

  We have exciting plans to grow various different vegetables in our raised bed and polytunnel as well as sunflowers. The children have already been working hard digging the soil to prepare as well as tidying the rest of the garden area. They also will be painting and decorating wooden signs to display in the garden for their vegetable growing.    


Homework will be set on Google classroom and we would like it to be handed in on a Friday. Reading records will also be collected in on a Friday. Children are keeping their allocated reading books in school to read each day but please could children also keep up their reading at home. For this, they can read a home book of their choice and then record in PEN in their reading record. (If anyone doesn't have a book they want to read at home, they are very welcome to borrow one from the library to keep for home use until they have finished it.)      

The Hobby Team

Thursday 1st April

This Morning, during outdoor learning , we had a class Easter hunt in the garden finding paper eggs. Some were easier to find than others! We then planted carrots, peas, potatoes, onions and radish in our class raised  bed.

Some of us spent a mindful morning creating wonderful signs  for our Hobby garden. 

Wednesday 31st March

Today in Hobby, we created spring scenes with a stained glass/ silhouette effect using coloured  tissue paper and black card.

Check out our amazing Space artwork!! We used a range of techniques including chalk, marbling and watercolours and we're really pleased with the results.

For outdoor learning this week, we made nature inspired bookmarks. We explored the garden to find inspiration for our designs, then using water colour and ink, we chose a tranquil area to create our bookmarks. 

Merry Christmas Hobby class!!

We hope you all have a truly magical Christmas! Rest up, spend time with your families and we can't wait to see you all in the new year!!

For a bit of end-of-term fun we have put together our own covid version of '12 Days of Christmas'. Thank you to Hobby class for the inspiration - you know who you are!

We hope it brings a smile to your faces!

Love Miss Grant and Miss Hellyer x

In Hobby we talked about Rememberance Day and created our own poppies.
In R.E we have been learning about Hinduism. We recently learned about Hindu festivals including Diwali. The children created their own Rangoli patterns to celebrate the festival of light using different mediums.
Some of the children have created their own models for our Native Indian topic.  

We have had great fun this term learning all about the Native Americans! Here is our Topic display exhibiting some of our tribal posters, dreamcatchers and totem pole designs.

Over the last two weeks we have been working in groups, creating powerpoint presentations about various aspects of Native American Life. We have researched Weapons, religion and beliefs, entertainment, clothing and tools used.  Yesterday we presented these to the rest of the class.

31/01/20 As part of our half term’s social play learning, we have been thinking about how people with different needs would find our classroom and social environment. This week we used blindfolds to simulate a sight difficulty. We found it tricky to enjoy the activities that we usually do such as drawing, card games and moving around the room.

30/01/20 We have been learning about genetics in our science lessons. Here we are making our own geneticons!

16/01/20 Hobby Class were editing their work today by visiting different stations on the editing train line! It helped us to remember what we need to include and gave us some helpful hints if we forgot what something meant.

06/12/19 Hobby Class are really enjoying Social Play where we learn different games to play with each other. Our teamwork and communication skills have really improved. Here we have children playing werewolf, carrot and stick, silent ball and drawing games.

5/11/19 We used atlases and maps to look at different places in the U.K. We then learned about how land can be used for different things such as farming, hills, rivers and cities.

Missing photos! Some photos on our class page have gone missing! Mrs Meyers is hunting to see if she can find them again and put them back online. Sorry for this.

20/09/19 Working with some of Osprey Class, we played some barrier games to test our communication skills. What a lovely way to spend a Friday afternoon!

30/09/19 We love writing up our work into our final write books.
