Welcome to our Year 5 Page

In Year 5, we endeavour to create a learning environment that maximises learning potential both inside and outside the classroom. We strive to build the power of learning by creating classroom cultures that cultivate the habits and attitudes of curious, confident and independent learners. Unlocking learning behaviours and building learning habits that equip our young people with skills to thrive in the 21st Century.

Term by Term

Our captivating research areas provide a hook in which to spark pupil’s imagination promoting self initiated learning.

In the Autumn Term, we travel back in time to Ancient Greece exploring Greek life and achievements and their influence on the western world. Imagine embracing the Ancient Greek life for a day. That’s exactly what happens in Y5 on our ‘Greek Day’! Dressing from head to toe in Grecian clothes learning their way of life, hearing stories of their gods and goddesses and tasting their food are just some of the activities that children will be involved in on this fun filled day!

An out of this world research area awaits us in the Spring Term. We will explore the Solar System, Earth, Sun and Moon and investigate the relative relationship between them. It’s one small step for man, and one giant leap for Year 5!

In the Summer Term, we learn about our local heritage and the history of ironstone mining. Within 20 years of Marley and Vaughan stumbling upon the initial outcrop of ironstone, a new iron works stretched along the south bank of the Tees, creating new communities like South Bank and Grangetown. We look at the rise of Teesside’s illustrious steel industry and how it stretched across the globe.

Residential Experience

Our Year 5 residential takes us on an unforgettable adventure to our capital city, London. The children visit some of our most iconic venues and experience first hand the wonders of our capital.

24 Hour Classroom

In Year 5 we promote independent learning behaviours and aim to create confident digital citizens. We use the iPad to transform the way we teach and learn in and out of the classroom. Children in Year 5 will use this device as a powerful learning tool. With a range of creative tools, interactive textbooks and a universe of apps we endeavour to unlock the learning potential and harness the power within their fingertips.

To conclude

We strive to create a climate in which children love to learn and that children have the necessary learning behaviours that maximises learning potential.

We pride ourselves on having friendly, approachable staff that are readily available to answer questions and curb any anxieties.
