Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

 

We are very excited to welcome you to our Year 5 webpage. This is where we will be sharing any information or photos about events happening throughout the year so please check regularly for any updates.

 

Following 2 unusual academic years for the children involving remote learning, zoom calls and more, we are hopeful that this year will feel much more "normal" for the children. We will take the invaluable skills they have learnt from this time including resilience and adaptability and continue to develop our pupils and ensure they reach their full potential.

 

The Year 5 curriculum is engaging and varied and we are sure the children are going to enjoy their learning this year. Some highlights include The Solar System, The Vikings, Computer Coding and making their own stuffed toys! We will be supporting the children with their reading and writing by extending their vocabulary and will focus on daily maths fluency alongside their maths sequences.

 

As well as an exciting curriculum, year 5 will also have an opportunity to go on a residential trip to Woodrow that they missed last year due to Covid-19. They will also participate in Young Chef Of The Year; a national competition celebrating their culinary skills.

 

We hope the children enjoy the year as much as we will.

23.9.21 Year 5 took part in a running event at Monkswalk. They had a great time and tested their stamina by running a total of 3km! We were very proud of them all.

20.9.21 Year 5 have had an excellent start to the year writing simple sentences in French to say if they have any pets. They are combining their knowledge of animals, numbers and the verb "to have".
