Welcome to Year 5’s Class Page!
The Year 5 teacher is Mr Davison and he is joined by Mrs Miles, Mrs Robotham and Mr Mensha who are the class teaching assistants.
In Year 5, the children learn how to be independent learners and are encouraged to take risks and push themselves to be the best they can be. Through a stimulating and challenging environment – and lots of 80’s rock pop- children will experience fun and engaging lessons from all areas of the curriculum not just the core subjects.
Year 5 provides the opportunity to learn beyond the classroom on several occasions through our residential trip to north Wales and trips to the local areas. Children will also be taught by specialist in several foundation subject areas including PE, Music, French and Mandarin.
Our topics fully support the schools wider ethos of creating global citizens, with a knowledge of modern British values. Children are encouraged to think carefully about their role and impact on the world through our ‘It’s Not Too Late’ topic and learn about their local history in our ‘Down t’pit’ topic. Throughout the year, we take part in many initiatives that support work undertaken by the children in class such as Anti-Bullying Week and Black History Month.
We believe every child has the right to feel safe and comfortable in our classroom to give them the platform strive for greatness over the year. We hope that all Year 5 children will enjoy the year, overcome challenges and reach their targets, so that they are ready for their transition to Year 6 and the added responsibilities which come with this.
