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. This half-term sees us say goodbye to Ms Harvey, who is going into Year 6, and hello to Miss Perkin, who worked with me in Year 5 last year.  

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.  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 all about fractions, ranging from comparing fractions; adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators, and multiplying fractions by whole numbers.  We will be covering a range of other subjects including Living Things in Science; exploring mountains around the world and understanding how to read and devise databases in Computing. Please take a look at our curriculum overview for this half term for a full breakdown of the subjects the children will be learning about.

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.

Kind regards,

Miss Henderson
