Year 5 is a very important year. It is a year where we feel the children start to mature and show sustained learning power. We provide the children with a broad and varied learning experience which aims to prepare them for the rigours of Year 6.
This term, our cross curricular topic is ‘Iceworlds – exploring the Polar Regions’. They will also have the chance to go on a short residential stay at an Outdoor centre too.
Teachers: Mr Kinsey (5K) and Mrs Lewis (5/6L)
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Day (5K) and Mrs Woodberry (5/6L)
Year 5 English Group – Miss Crowley
