Welcome to Year 5
This is the first stage of UKS2 for our pupils. We believe that Year 5 is a fantastic year! Not only do we foster our children’s thirst for knowledge through our enriching curriculum but we develop their independent skills ready for Year 6 and ultimately the transition to secondary school and adult life.
In our Year 5 cohort we have two classes, Deer and Bats. In Deer class there is Miss Lancaster (class teacher), Miss Millicone (support staff), Mrs Lewis (support staff) and Mis Rehman (support). In Bats class there is Miss Chapman (class teacher) and Mrs Pearson (support staff). We are also very lucky to have Mrs Grunwell who supports the learning across Year 5, running groups alongside the children’s timetable to ensure all children reach their full potential.
In Year 5, we like to see all of our children being challenged to do their best scaffolded by our interactive, supportive and welcoming team. We work closely with the schools ‘Be’ rules and consistently reinforce these high expectations across the school day. We encourage our children to empathise and understand people of all abilities, physical needs, backgrounds, cultures and genders and will always promote open talks about these topics.
We have an exciting and inclusive curriculum, which sets high aspirations and standards, through which all children can reach their full potential. A typical morning in Year 5 consists of daily Maths, English and Reading lessons, where we learn about a variety of different and interesting topics. We will be reading lots of exciting books like Harry Potter, Charlotte's Web and Street Child, delving into the characters and the different storylines. On top of this, we ensure subjects such as Science, Geography, Art and Design, computing, languages and PE take high precedence in the children’s learning. We study engaging, enquiry based topics to really allow our children to lead their own learning using the skills taught. Our curriculum is supplemented through enriching trips as well as visitors coming into school. Additionally, we are very lucky to have our own specialist Spanish and music teachers to help enrich our curriculum!
During our learning, we aim to keep you up-to-date with all the fun we have through our online learning platform, Class Dojo.
We look forward to meeting you!
