Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Throughout the school day, Year 5 work extremely hard on their learning with the help of Miss Garsrud, Mrs Roberts and Mrs Mills. In Year 5, the children work exceptionally hard each day in every subject.


World Book Day!


During the Autumn term, the children have produced some wonderful Optical Art, Non-Chronological reports based on Roald Dahl’s BFG and descriptive writing based on the film ‘Twister’.


Year 5 are working phenomenally hard this term. Our focus remains on Growth Mindset, with the children focussing on their aspirations for the future and how we can work together to achieve them. We have taken part in some fantastic Science experiments including investigating ‘Gyrocopters’ and taken part in the ‘Mission to Mars’ and ‘Cargo’ workshops. Finally, the children have written some fantastic battle speeches to overcome the dreaded ‘Tyrannoflax’. The children filmed their writing in front of a green screen and edited their films using iMovie and DoInk iPad apps.

With the Bedford Faith tour, a residential trip to Burwell House and lots more green-screening and filming to take place, we hope that Year 5 at Broxbourne is one to remember!
