‘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 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.

Our English lessons allow the children to be creative as well as developing both their reading and writing skills. We make our Mathematic 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!

Our residential visit to Avon Tyrrell in September, build on children's experiences in Year 4. We continue to develop teamwork skills and nature studies while carrying out adventurous activities such as raft building, kayaking and mountain biking.

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.
