Mini Teachers

Today in Mr Cluett’s maths group, a couple of the children had a go teaching the class.

Mr Miranda-Zezula gave a clear and accurate lesson about adding by bridging 10. While Mr Hamer inspired everyone with his lesson about adding by partitioning.

Have a watch of their efforts and give them some feedback by commenting afterwards…

    huh me lol!


  • Heather Hamer · September 25, 2014 at 6:20 pm

    I really enjoyed these two lessons. Mr Miranda-Zezula and Mr Hamer each gave a very clear description of what to do and I now understand it perfectly.

    Really well explained guys, maths was never this much fun when I was at school


  • Deborah Fisk · September 25, 2014 at 10:05 pm

    I had no idea that there were 2 new fantastic teachers at Holme Grange! Well done to Mr Miranda-Zezula and Mr Hamer and to all in 3C, an excellent maths lesson.

    Excellent lesson from Nichlas and Charlie H.


  • Kathryn Forbes · September 26, 2014 at 6:01 pm

    Very grown up!


  • Rachel Owen · September 26, 2014 at 6:32 pm

    Well done Nicholas and Charlie. Year 3 gave such fantastic answers thanks to your teaching. I think Mr Boynes and Mr Cluett had better watch out!


  • Amanda MacAuley · September 29, 2014 at 8:40 pm

    Stupendous! I wish I had had you as my maths teachers.

    If I had had such super maths teachers when I was at school I think I might have passed my exams. What a clever Class 3C is. It would be super if one day Mr Miranda-Zezula and Mr Hamer could come and teach where I live in South Africa!


    • Nicholas · October 1, 2014 at 6:08 pm

      i would definitely want to go and teach in South Africa! thank you Jenny.

    Brilliant Mr Zezula, you make a great Maths teacher and have such clever students. Your taa das finali is fantastic! Well done x


    • Nicholas · October 1, 2014 at 6:10 pm

      Thank you Laura. Does Alistair bridge tens at his new school in Kenya?


  • Katka · October 1, 2014 at 3:43 pm

    Wow, what a great math lesson. If you continue like that, Mr. Zezula-Miranda, you could very well be next in the family tree of teachers. Do you know that few of your relatives in Prague teach? There are three of them and one even taught math…


  • J.Wooster · October 1, 2014 at 5:55 pm

    Mr Hamer is going to be a fab teacher when he’s older.
    He has got great maths skills and well done.


  • Luke · October 1, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    Nicholas and Charlie look like great teachers in the maths lesson. They should be teachers at Holme Grange when they are older? Does that sound good?


    • charlie h · October 4, 2014 at 8:37 am

      yes that does sound good


  • Max Fisk · October 1, 2014 at 7:36 pm

    I liked our maths lesson with our new teachers but they didn’t give us any house points!


  • Isabella · October 1, 2014 at 7:57 pm

    I enjoyed you teaching me maths Mr Hamer and Mr Miranda Zuezula.


  • Oswald Gomez · October 1, 2014 at 8:17 pm

    Excellent pronunciation… I personally never got the “u” sound right… A big well done to these mini teachers…


  • Aurelia · October 1, 2014 at 9:18 pm

    What a fun teacher you were. I wish you were my teacher.


    • charlie h · October 4, 2014 at 8:38 am

      well i was for a while!


  • Anna, Jono, Sophie and Tommy Froome · October 2, 2014 at 9:33 pm

    A question from Sophie – please could you be my teacher when I go to school next year Nicholas?

    A comment from A&J – we reckon you are a trend setter Nicholas and soon all teachers at Holme Grange will be ending their lessons with a “ta da!” Well done!


  • Author comment by Mrs Robinson · October 5, 2014 at 1:43 pm

    I might have a job for you boys – well done, some excellent strategies and very engaging teaching. You have been taught well!


  • Prabhs Sullivan · October 11, 2014 at 7:46 am

    Great work Mr Miranda-Zelula and Mr Hamer, I think you can give Mr Cluett a day off 🙂
