Bouman Class (Y5)

Bouman Class is our Year Five class and we form part of The Pioneers Stage. Our teachers are Mrs Baxter and Mrs Allen. Our class is named after Katie Bouman. Katie Bouman is an American engineer, who, in 2019, worked as part of a team that captured the first-ever image of a black hole in a photograph.
Summer 2 - The Mysterious Past
For our launch day, we will be doing a DT day! We will be exploring African patterns from Benin and designing our own soft toys, making an accurate template then learning sewing skills to stitch our creation together! 

Talk for Writing 

In English our focus text is Children of the Benin Kingdom. The children will explore the story from various perspectives, comparing characters and writing letters in role.  They will discover the meanings of new words within the context of the story. 


In Maths we will continue to investigate shape, position & direction, and negative numbers before consolidating our understanding of the topics covered in Year Five.


PE will be on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. The students will need kit suitable for both indoor and outdoor activities.

This term we will be learning skills in both Rounders and Athletics.

Reading and Handwriting
At Nansledan, we appreciate the huge importance of both reading and handwriting. These are the keys to unlocking the rest of the curriculum. With this in mind, time is devoted to these skills daily.

Spellings & Homework
Each week there will be new spellings, these are available on Google Classroom. A list of words that children in England are expected to be able to spell by the end of Year 6 (age 11) can be found below.

Homework is set half termly as the suggested learning opportunities at home and can be found on Google Classroom. Children are also able to access TTRS, Spelling Shed and SumDog whilst at home.
