Welcome to our Year 5
In our year group, we bring enthusiasm and entertainment as well as providing a safe environment, where your child will find a true love for learning! Year 5 is full of aspiration; energy and our primary aim is to empower pupils into becoming confident and independent life-long learners. Every day is different in Year 5. You will find a year group full of hard-workers, deep-divers and innovators! We ensure that we have fun on our learning journey by providing pupils with memorable learning experiences that they will remember for the rest of their lives.
As a team, we consistently promote positive behaviour and our school’s ‘DREAMS’ values – using our Class Dojo to reward students. Mr Derbyshire and Mr Southern regularly compete in a battle to see who can give the most Dojo points and sit on the throne as the ‘King of the Dojos’.
Although this may be a tough year due to circumstances out of our control, we promise we will do everything in our power to support our pupils and their families each and every day. We will encourage pupils to embody our core values and maximise their potential! Our classroom is a safe and innovative environment, in where your child will receive the best possible education we have to offer. We encourage and motivate every child to succeed, as well as equipping them with fundamental life skills.
No day is the same in our year group. Your child is provided with a creative and exhilarating learning experience, full of practical and inclusive lessons. We aim to sculpt each child into becoming lesson-loving, classroom-cherishing and school-succeeding learners, who will develop the skills to independently tackle any problem placed in front of them! They will enter a supportive and connected environment in which they feel safe, and they will be provided with the opportunity to dive deep into a number of exciting and stimulating topics!
Throughout the year we will be exploring some very interesting topics. In Geography, we will travel across the Atlantic to South America and embark on an exhilarating adventure through the Amazon rainforest. If that doesn’t excite you, in History, we will hop aboard our very own time machine, as we travel back to discuss whether the Vikings were actually ‘Vicious Villains’ or whether they were ‘Valiant Voyagers’! In Science, you can strap yourself in to our very own ‘Apollo Y5’ as we blast off on a journey to uncover the secrets of the universe and answer the question ‘Is there anyone out there?’ These are just some of the many exciting topics we will explore as part of our curriculum.
Although recent events have brought unprecedented challenges to us all, rest assured, our promise to you is that we will support your child (emotionally, socially and academically) and place them back on the right path to becoming a life-long learner.
At the moment, the vast majority of our children are working remotely from home. To access our daily remote learning template, please click the following link: Our Year 5 Remote Learning Activities.
