Welcome to Year 5

Year 5 is an exciting year where the children are involved in engaging and challenging activities.

Throughout the year, we support the children to help them take more responsibility for their learning by developing their independence and resilience. We also ensure that they have opportunities to work with others, developing their team work and communication skills.

We have fun over the year learning about ‘The Ancient Greeks’, ‘Vikings’ and ‘Our Eastern European Neighbours’. Our planning provides diverse opportunities for the children to develop their creativity through topics such as ‘Talking Textiles’ where they work with others to retell Ancient Greek myths using a variety of different sewing skills. The children also use clay to make mythical creatures.

Each term, the children enjoy sharing with others what they have been learning in our year group assemblies. It is such a great opportunity for the children to demonstrate their confidence when performing and singing songs to an audience. We are so proud of what the children achieve by the end of the year, and they are too!
