What makes our Year 5 special? 

Year 5 is a vibrant and engaging place to be as each day presents a fresh and exciting adventure! We are devoted to fostering a safe and supportive environment where students can learn and grow to their fullest potential. We offer inclusive and hands-on lessons that stimulate their creativity and curiosity. We strive to instil in them a deep and abiding love for learning with the essential life skills that will serve them well throughout their lives.

Our core values are an essential part of our curriculum, and we work hard to help our students become determined, respectful, empowered, appreciative, and motivated learners. By teaching these skills, we believe we are preparing our students to become confident, lifelong learners who are successful in all their future endeavours.

Throughout the year, we explore captivating topics ranging from Ancient Greeks in History to the mysteries of the universe in Science. Our primary objective is to inspire our students to become passionate about learning that will stay with them for years to come.

We are committed to supporting our pupils and their families in every way possible. We would like to thank our parents/carers for their valued support.
