Welcome to Year 5
Year 5 are taught by Miss Taylor and Mrs Cirin. This year, we are focusing on six key topics, spread across the different half terms: Chocolate; Our World; the USA; Space; London; and Saxons and Vikings. There are a number of exciting opportunities for the children based around these topics, such as the thrilling (and highly educational) visit to Cadbury World in Birmingham!
The children have more responsibility in Year 5 and are encouraged to be independent learners; our Upper Key Stage 2 motto is “Look Smart, Think Smart”, with a high emphasis being placed not only on learning and progress, but equally on being excellent role models for the younger children in the school.
The children in Year 5 follow the new National Curriculum, which you can read more about on the Department for Education website.
