Welcome to Year Five
I hope that you have all had a lovely summer!
My name is Miss Islam and I am the Year 5 teacher. I will be working alongside Mrs Ridler, Mrs Franklin and Mrs Khanna to ensure that Year Five have a great learning experience. We will work together to create a safe and stimulating environment for the children to learn in. As a team, we have high expectations of the pupils to support their learning. We want our children to adopt a love for learning and to do this will ensure that learning is fun and motivating.
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 myths and legends - where the children will have the opportunity to write their own version but from different perspectives. We will look at writing and performing poetry - cinqains, writing recounts and explanation texts.
Maths will initially have a clear focus upon times tables and further securing place value before we move on to a range of areas.
In topic this term, Year 5 will be learning about the life styles of The Ancient Greeks. They will have the opportunity to experience their very own Greek day where they will get the chance to dress up in full Greek attire! 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!
