Welcome to Year 5: The first step in the upper school learning journey!  

Here in Year 5 our teaching staff: Mrs Kitchen, Mrs Manning and Mr Kemp are here to support the children’s transition between lower and upper school. While all year groups are equally as valued it is in this year group that children begin their preparation for their final year of Junior School; including their SATs. A ‘step up’ in academic challenges which rewards hard work and perseverance with opportunity and personal growth. 

Let the learning begin: 

In Year 5 we explore an exciting variety of topics to deliver curriculum knowledge. From the life and times of The Tudors to the depths of the Amazon Rainforest. From the thought provoking works of Banksy to the far reaches of our Solar System. Year 5 delivers a great mixture of new and challenging content to stretch and develop the imagination of our learners. 

Adventures in Year 5: 

On our learning journey we have already visited the Barton Turf Adventure Centre, as part of our new affiliation with the Norfolk Broads Authority, to study the wildlife and habitats of our local area – and to enjoy a sunset hot-chocolate on top of Beeston Bump; followed by a night-time walk with friends. Looking forward, eagerly, we plan to visit the Sainsbury Centre and the Great Yarmouth Time and Tide Museum; developing knowledge and creating fond memories. 

Year 5 upholds our school’s values for creating independent, confident, and valued learners. In preparing for the challenges ahead we encourage a strong sense of team spirit, embraced creative thinking and passionate ‘can do’ attitude.
