Bouman Class (Y5)

Bouman Class is our Y5 class and we form part of The Pioneers Stage. Our teachers are Miss 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.
Spring 1 - How dark is the dark ages?
 For our launch day, we will be exploring Anglo-Saxon patterns and the alphabet to create our own messages in runes.

Talk for Writing 

This term, we will be reading Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo to familiarise ourselves with a classic text. Within our English lessons, the children will be exploring their use of language and the structure of myths and legends before writing their own.



In Maths this term, we will be continuing to focus on multiplication and division and develop confidence in using the formal methods within problem-solving calculations. We will then focus on fractions, decimals and percentages. 



PE will take place on Wednesday afternoon and children should bring appropriate sports kit to change into on this day. Please speak to a member of school staff if you are unsure of expectations when it comes to PE kit. This term we will be exploring how our bodies’ move and develop sequences using counter-balances. We will also be developing our skills for team sports, including handling and communication.


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.



Homework is set half termly and can be found on Google Classroom. Each week there will be new spellings, these are available on Spelling Shed and Google Classroom. Children are also able to access TTRS, Spelling Shed and SumDog whilst at home.
