Welcome to Year 5, where we blast in to space, solve fractions problems, write stories about imaginary planets, sail on the Titanic, explore Argentina, discover how chocolate is made and much, much more!!
These exciting topics stretch across the year to include various subjects, in order to make learning as interesting and relevant as possible. In Year 5, we also make an effort to involve the children in planning what they would like to learn about each topic, giving them greater ownership and ‘buy-in’. We try to develop a growth mindset in all children so that they become successful learners who want to find out new things and explore the world around them.
We work closely with the parents of children in our class to ensure that there is good communication and an effective working partnership; helping to reinforce the learning ethos of the school.
