Welcome to Storey Class

Teacher: Mrs Boulby
Hello and welcome to our Year Five class, taught by Mrs Boulby (more commonly, Mrs. B!), with Mr Watson and Mrs Sykes (and Mrs Martin on Mondays). This year all our classes are named after potential Olympic athletes - we are called Storey Class, after super-Paralympian Sarah Storey.
We are the oldest class in school, so as well as the usual work we also have lots of responsibilities, such as being Play-leaders, setting up the Music and Computer for Collective Worship, looking after the Library, working with Reception as Shared Reading partners and so on. We also get to go on the best trip in school – Robinwood activity centre in Todmordon.
Our classroom is bright and cheerful, with lots of interactive displays, and different learning zones. We do lots of different topics: this year this includes Ancient Greece, Space, Water and Victorians: A Time of Change. We have fun, as well as doing our best work. Some of the best bits in our class are the theme days: on Greek day, we try lots of Greek food and have an Ancient Greek Top Model catwalk challenge! On Victorian Day, we all dress up - teachers included - and pretend to be in a Victorian classroom and do old-style Reading, wRiting and 'Rithmetic, as well as PT and sewing (girls only of course).
Mrs B has been teaching for a long time and loves working with older KS2 children, encouraging us to develop greater independence, responsibility and prepare us for our move on to Middle School. She aims to stimulate a love of learning, and help us develop into “confident, switched-on young people with a good work ethic and respect for others.”
We believe our classroom should be a safe and happy environment, where everyone is respected and feels able to try new things, offer suggestions and learn through making mistakes. We want to get the most out of our last year here at Scissett CE Academy – and give something back as well!

Shared Reading

Posted: Feb 9, 2020 by: Heather Boulby (hboulby) on: Storey Class Blog

In September, we all trained to become Shared Reading mentors. This means that we read once a week with a partner in Reception and help to develop their reading. There were lots of different reading strategies to learn, and we practised them in pairs. It was very fun, because we had to pretend to be the 4- or 5-year-olds some of the time.

We have been reading with the younger children for several weeks now – it is great to spend time with them and talk about books every Friday afternoon.

    

    

    

We are in our PJs because Mrs B took these photos on Children in Need day!
