Welcome to Year 5.
A key part of year 5 is to encourage independence, both at home and in school, in preparation for KS3.
Year 5 firmly believe that the best learning takes place when children are happy, safe and stimulated. We endeavour to teach whenever possible a practical and multi-sensory approach which is accessible to all. Peer support and guidance is also a vital attribute, that develops throughout the year.
We study an exciting curriculum in this academic year, from the world’s natural disasters to an indepth study of Africa and China. This will give us some wonderful historical and geographical opportunities to build on the children’s knowledge and understanding of the world.
In the event that you need to contact any of our teachers, you are welcome to contact via the following email addresses:
