Year Five


Welcome to Year 5!

Can you believe we’re already in the Summer Term? I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Break and have eaten lots of chocolate!

First of all, I think it’s fair to say that all of the children, Mrs Franklin, Mrs Khanna and I have been learning lots – but most importantly enjoying our learning.

Year Five comes with new challenges and opportunities for children to experience learning through a range of exciting topics. This will sometimes require us to work quietly and independently, concentrating hard on the task ahead.  Other times, we are more lively, working together in teams or chatting to our learning partner. The children are encouraged to try their best at all times. 

In Literacy this term, we will be focusing on a range of topics including fiction from our literary heritage - where the children will have the opportunity to write their own contemporary versions of one of Shakespeare’s famous plays; report writing; discussions where the children will write up a balanced discussion, presenting two sides of an argument, and also exploring, writing and performing a range of poetry.

Maths will initially have a clear focus upon times tables alongside their mathematical understanding and reasoning. We will cover a range of topics such as percentages, shape, angles, reflection and translation, perimeter and statistics – all of this will involve lots of challenging problem solving tasks.

In topic this term, Year 5 will be learning about North America and also the development of Borehamwood throughout the years.

Our classroom is full of happy, smiling, friendly faces; friends that care about each other and teachers that help and support everyone.  When we’re not in our classroom, we may be out and about learning in our school grounds or further afield on an exciting school trip!

We love to learn and find about new things.
