Year 5 - Highclere

Welcome to Highclere's class page. Miss Wells, Mrs Grieve and Mrs Lush are working with the children in Highclere this year.


Our Topic this half-term is Forces. In English we have produced our very own travel brochures persuading people to come to Rome. In order to this we have had to perfect our use of figurative language and adjectives/adverbs. More recently, we have been applying this same learning to different poetry forms. We have been learning about various forms of figurative language and how to use these for maximum impact on the reader.

In Maths we are continuing to review all four operations and improving our speed and accuracy at calculations, whilst applying these to increasingly tricky word problems. We are exploring shape in terms of reflection and transformation and fractions. If you would like to support your child on their times tables, we can recommend this great site:
