With 6 years’ worth of experience and achievement gained, the children enter Year 5 with a sense of purpose and maturity. We aim to foster this maturity through encouraging the children to help, guide and be role models to the younger children. The curriculum is designed to stretch their eager young minds, and prepare them for life in Year 6. Children study a range of novels which help to create a thematic approach to learning. Children build on their calculation skills throughout the year, developing more formal written methods.
