Welcome to Year 5
We are looking forward to meeting our new classes and making sure that we make a really positive start to this very important year.
Year 5 can be a calm and studious year; a year to embed all of the knowledge learnt in lower Key Stage 2; a year to start the preparations for transition to secondary school.
This is often a year when children grow in maturity – sometimes even more so than in their final year in primary. They gain a greater independence and confidence from being given more responsibility in their learning.
Children in Year 5 are increasingly encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning: to do their homework, to pack their school bag, to remember their PE kits. And they develop and grow as a result. It is about encouraging independence in preparation for bigger things to come.
Autumn Term 2020
During first half of the Autumn Term, our learning will be based around our history topic:
The Anglo Saxons.
English, reading, history, art, D/T, geography and even science will all be taught through this theme so get ready to travel back in time to an often brutal, difficult and ultimately transitional time in our history.
