Hobby – Miss Grant (Year 5/6)

Welcome to Hobby Class



Hobby Teaching Team:

Miss Grant

Mrs Williams


If you are at home and self-isolating, but are well enough to complete your learning, then please access the lessons on Google Classroom! I have dated work so that you can pick up where you left us and go from there. The work is in line with what we are doing in school, but has obviously been adapted slightly for you; this means when you return to us, you should be in the same place :)

We look forward to seeing you all back in the classroom very soon!


Hello and welcome to Autumn term in Hobby class.


Our topic this term is 'Mummies and Tombs' where we are going to focus on Ancient Egyptian history and river characteristics, particularly the river Nile.

 In English, we have written Egyptian Newspaper reports and short stories based on 'A Christmas Carol'.

 In Maths this half term, we have been working on our fractions skills and will begin looking at decimals and percentages in January.

Our Wider World topic is 'Relationships' where we will be learning about how to maintain safe and successful relationships and what to do if we are unhappy within any of our family, friend or wider relationships. 


Our P.E lessons this year are on Mondays, so please could children ensure they are dressed in their P.E kits on Mondays. This half term we are practising our netball and basket ball skills. 


Homework will be set on Fridays and we would like it to be handed in on a Friday. This means the children can spend their weekends with family and friends and having a break from school work.

Reading records will be collected and checked on a Monday. Children are expected to read at least 4 times a week for a minimum of 20 minutes.        

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!! I am so proud of the children's sewing work over the last couple of weeks. They have worked incredibly hard planning felt decorations and then practising their stitching, before creating these beautifully stuffed pieces!


Carefully, the poppies lay over all who passed in the war

As the poppies sway in the gentle breeze, the dead lay in peace

As the poppies bloom, they remind me of the blood lost from soldiers in the war

As the soldiers rest beneath the ground, the red poppies cover the battlefield like a duvet

As the sky sheds tears, the poppies awake from their slumber

As the poppies dance in the cold breeze, they pose in the sunlight like soldiers

The crosses stand guard over the dead bodies in their graves

The crimson petals on the apple green stems are reaching for the sun

The engraved plaques on the white marble wall watch over the essence of the dead soldiers
