Year 5

Year 5 strives to create confident, independent and organised learners, who are prepared for the transition to year 6 and SATs. As part of this, children have a number of roles and responsibilities around the classroom. Children are encouraged to work independently, but also collaborate in pairs or small groups. Children will get the chance to sit with a variety of different children across the year to develop their relationships with their peers. Year 5 is a fun and supportive environment where children learn both cooperatively and independently.
