The Last Post!

So this is it 5HB, the very end!

For me it has been a fantastic two years and I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching you all in Years Four and Five. At the risk of being slightly sentimental, I think I might even miss you! Remember, KS1 isn’t a different dimension – you can always come and visit!

I will be leaving this blog up on the web so that you can look back at your old work and also post comments from time to time if you wish.

Hopefully there will be a new 1HB blog starting very soon ( and I’d love you to visit. However, right now you can move over to my teaching blog ( where you’ll still be able to find interesting (or not-so-interesting) things I’ll be posting about a whole range of topics.

All that’s left to say is THANK YOU and GOOD LUCK – you’ve all been great.

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

So here it is at last, the 5HB News!

We worked really hard on this newspaper during our final literacy unit in Year Five. Have a good read and post some comments about the different things we did.

Well done on a great newspaper 5HB – you’ve done an excellent job!

The last day!

So this is it, the final day of 5HB.

It’s been an excellent year and I hope you have enjoyed being part of this class and the blog.

Any final thoughts?

Spacewalk aborted!

Astronauts from the International Space Station were taking part in a spacewalk today to get the space station ready for a new module.

However, during the walk one of the astronauts found there was water inside his spacesuit and it started to become quite dangerous – it didn’t have anywhere to go and he couldn’t see very well! Imagine how dangerous that would be if you were up in space!

The beginning of the end for 5HB

So today you meet your new class teachers and get a glimpse of what life will be like in Year Six.

The worst kept secret in the school is that unfortunately I won’t be joining you next year but instead am making a move down to Year One! For those that missed all the unintentional clues left around the classroom, perhaps you should have been more awake!

What are your thoughts on moving to Year Six?
