Year 5 is a wonderful year to watch the children achieve great success. The curriculum is varied, creative and yet increasingly demanding. New skills are taught and we improve one’s already acquired. Homework builds up, and children are expected to become more independent in their learning. That all being said, the topics are inviting and, hopefully inspiring to all pupils.
We find that pupils rise to the challenge as they are heavily praised and celebrated for their efforts, everyone is treated individually and encouraged to reach their full potential. Any children who are showing to have educational difficulties are supported, and where possible intervention put into place. Our higher achievers are recognised and expected to strive for the stars. Pastoral care in Year 5 is important as hormones can be starting to surface! We ensure that a good relationship is built with parents and children are supported through times of need. Plenty of time is given to personal, social and cultural learning about themselves and others.
Mrs McClanlish is supporting Year 5 this year.

The weather wasn’t always the kindest, but everyone attacked all of the activities with great enthusiasm and energy and I […]
Each year we celebrate European Languages Day. Each class looks at a different country and explores the languages, culture and geography. We have had a super time! Many classes like to try and explore a new country, this year Belgium was the choice of Year 6.
What an amazing experience! Because the tour was heading through Kirkby Lonsdale, we came together to make a whole school bike wheel on the field before heading off to watch the riders as they sped past. The atmosphere on the road was amazing as dozens of motorbikes, support cars and media vans whizzed past, all […]
