Welcome to the Year 5
Our staff for 2016/17 are:
5S – Mr Smith and 5T – Mrs Taylor with Teaching Assistant Mrs Lea
Additional Teacher Miss Jeffery.
In year 5 we approach each day with the aim of all children being able to achieve excellence and inspire dreams.
We practise our spellings and literary techniques every day as we strive to become accomplished writers. Reading is also a daily occurrence where we seek out the books we enjoy and search for books that will take us on a truly imaginative journey. Our Year 5 Maths curriculum is deep and varied and encourages learners to stretch the depth and breadth of their knowledge through concrete, pictorial and abstract learning. All children take part in PE lesson twice a week.
There are a number of trips linked to our curriculum that happen across the year to inspire, inform and entertain us. We investigate the history of Space and the origins of Democracy; we even get to visit the Houses of Parliament!
In Computing we are learning to become coders and programmers and when we find a bug in a code we become investigators. We investigate the problem and we find a way to fix it. Creating games, working with iPads to create presentations and animated movies are all projects in which we work collaboratively on to become established within Computing.
Overall, in Year 5 we are inspired by the 4 C’s of P4C: Creative, Collaborative, Critical and Caring. We practise these styles of learning on a daily basis as we continue to mature intellectually and socially.
