‘Where Children Come First’

Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

 

In Year 5 we aim to encourage children to be supportive, self driven, adventurous, to look beyond themselves and to make considered choices.

Our Motto is 'What can you do about it?'

Our curriculum builds on the skills that the children have developed in lower school. We believe that children should become increasingly independent in both their learning and organisation.

Throughout the year, the children have many exciting opportunities that bring learning to life, for example our Victorian school day helps the children to understand the similarities and differences of how children learnt in Victorian times compared to nowadays. They also get to ride a Victorian bike which is an experience not to be missed.

Our Literacy lessons allow the children to be creative as well as developing both their reading and writing skills. We make our Maths lessons relevant and interactive as well as ensuring that children have regular opportunities to experience open ended tasks. We ensure that our curriculum is well balanced and offers opportunities for all children to shine!

The children have the opportunity to experience two day trips. Our first trip is to Paultons Park to explore the science behind the rides and improve understanding about Forces. The second takes place in the Summer Term to support our Geography unit about Rivers. We trace the journey of the River Hamble from source to mouth.

Our residential visits to Avon Tyrrell in May, build on children's experiences from the Isle of Wight in Year 4. We continue to develop teamwork skills and nature studies while carrying out adventurous activities such as raft building, kayaking and rock climbing.

Challenging and supporting the children is at the heart of our curriculum and we strive to prepare them well so that they can continue to succeed in Year 6.
