Year 5

In Year 5, the children are supported by the following adults:
Jamie Patrick (Class teacher)
Claire Young (Teaching Assistant)

We aim to create a learning environment that encourages academic development as well as social development. Ultimately, if a child is happy, they're happy to learn!

The broad range of topics will engage and encourage all children to develop a passion for learning throughout the school year and beyond.


Year 5 Class Charter: 

We listen and show respect to others when they are talking.
We can work together and independently.
We are honest about our learning and know that it's okay to make mistakes.
We are passionate and excited to learn new things.
We are supportive and helpful.
We are positive about our learning: we seek challenge and never give up.

Does our Class Charter relate to our school values of 
Confidence, Compassion & Curiosity?
