Welcome to Class 5


I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you a Happy New Year. I also hope that the children are all ready to continue the hard work that they have started this year. I am very excited to be teaching this class again because I know just how wonderful they are. 


In Literacy, we will be studying a poem called ‘The Lady of Shalott’ by Alfred, Lord Tennyson.  It is a wonderful poem, full of atmosphere and emotion with challenging vocabulary. Through this, the children will create a range of writing pieces. In Maths, we will be focussing on measurement, converting between different units of measure and using all four operations to solve problems involving measure. As well as this we will learn how to calculate speed, time and distance using a formula and develop our understanding of division. We will be covering a range of other subjects including Earth and Space in Science; learning about what really happened during the Battle of Britain in History and exploring databases in Computing. Please take a look at our curriculum overview for a full breakdown of the subjects the children will be learning.


As you can see, we have an awful lot to do and it is vital that the children return to school with a positive attitude and willingness to learn. I know they can do this and I look forward to watching them grow and improve personally and collectively throughout the new term.


Should you have any questions or concerns that you wish to discuss with me, please do not hesitate to come and speak to me or a member of the Year 5 team.
