Year 5

Year 5 Teacher: Mr J Collins

We rely heavily on building a partnership with parents and carers.

Year 5 is the first of two years preparation for the end of Key Stage 2 SATS tests in Year 6 and the Eleven Plus which will be taken in the Autumn of Year 6.  Familiarisation of typical questions will occur throughout Year 5 for the 11+.

An excellent revision tool is 'Bitesize' on the BBC website.

One of the more popular topics for Year 5, is 'Vile Victorians'.  The children have the chance to dress up and we enhance the project to having a Victorian Day.  An Assembly to parents is where the children can share their Victorian knowledge.

Another exciting topic is in Geography where the children look at Wet and Wild rivers.  This topic is extended to include a residential visit to Castlehead in Cumbria where there are many indoor and outdoor activities.  Other topics include: The Groovy Greeks, Islam and Amazing Space!
