Meet your teacher
Miss Henson

Hello! My name is Miss Henson and I am your Year 5/6H Teacher.

I enjoy reading with my class; I like to share a story from start to finish and discuss how the plot develops. I also read a lot in my spare time too so please come and share some of the books you are reading at home too! I also enjoy art and trying to recreate famous piececs by well known artists. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a five-year-old called Mya, three dogs (two are Yorkshire Terriers and one is a Cockapoo) and one hamster called Fluffy. I enjoy taking my dogs for walks; the longer the better! I really like live music and when I can, I like to go and see bands such as Green Day and Foo Fighters.

This year’s main topics:

Autumn Term
Tudors: We will become historians and explore the Tudors including Henry VIII and his many wives and the great William Shakespeare.

Spring Term
Rainforests: An exploration into the deepest, darkest rainforests and what hides within.

Summer Term
Crime and Punishment: A look at crime and punishment from ancient times to present.

Class Information

The school day starts at 8:50am with the classroom doors opening at 8:45am. Registration is at 9:00am and learning starts immediately after. The school day ends at 3:05pm and children will need to be collected by an adult from the classroom door.

If you would like your child to be collected from school by someone other than yourself, a form will need to be filled in to advise school who your child/children can leave with. Forms are available from the office or from the classroom.

Please ensure your child has a water bottle to keep in the classroom. This can be taken home every day and filled with fresh water.

Reading books and reading journals will be sent home daily, and it would be beneficial if children read at least 3 times at home during each week. Reading diaries should be kept up to date with a brief comment.

PE: Will be twice a week. Please bring your PE on a Monday for the whole week and take home on a Friday.

Homework: Homework will be set every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday.

Spellings: Spellings will be sent home every Friday and we will work on them throughout the following week.
