Introduction to Year 5
In Year 5 our classes are named after famous and influential political figures – namely Churchill, Wilberforce and Pankhurst – Churchill the wartime prime minister, Wilberforce who was prominent in abolishing slavery as well as being one of the founders of the RSPCA. Emmeline Pankhurst was a famous suffragette campaigning for Women’s rights to vote.
Topics enjoyed by children in year 5 enable children to examine the very smallest creatures on our planet and extend to the awesome wonders of the galaxies – with quite a lot in between!
We are determined to get the children learning actively outdoors as often as possible, making decisions and thinking for themselves creatively and enthusiastically. Children are encouraged to ask deep questions, set personal goals and work and talk collaboratively.
Welcome to Year 5!
