5 – Robins

Mr Garrard

Hello, we are class 5 and we are called the Robins.

I am Mr Garrard the class teacher and we are all year 2. We are looking forward to starting the term exploring the book of ‘Iris and Isaac’ with a focus on our emotions and how we demonstrate our personal and social characteristics. We will be moving on to find out about the topics listed below. Class 3, 4 and 5 will be learning and activities together across the Key Stage 1.

Autumn 1 – A Place in the sun – Where in the world is Kenya?

Autumn 2 – I need a Hero! – What makes a hero?

Spring 1 –  We bought a zoo – What kind of animal are we?

Spring 2 – Toy Story - Are new toys better than old toys?

Summer 1 – Location, Location – What makes my home special?

Summer 2 – Through the keyhole – What would live in a place like this?

Throughout the year we will also be looking at how the seasons change.

This will be my second year Key Stage 1 after teaching in Key stage 2 since arriving at Arnold view. I am excited for the new year and can't wait to visit Hathersage again in the summer. I enjoy PE and run a lot of after school clubs but have a real passion for Maths or anything creative whether it is Art or DT.

When not at school I can be found spending time with my 2 daughters, who are both at school, playing football or camping at weekends. If I’m not playing football then I’m usually cheering on Scunthorpe United.
