In Year 5 we build on the children’s knowledge and skills from LKS2 and encourage them to work more independently by using a variety of self-help strategies including 3B4ME and Help Desks. They are encouraged to evaluate their own learning by identifying things they have done well and areas for development.
English and Maths lessons are taught daily and include individualised learning tasks to meet the needs of all children. Key skills, such as spellings and times tables, will be practised daily.
Homework will be set weekly through ‘Reading Rambles’ and ‘Maths Meander Books’ and your support is valued and vitally important for your child’s development, as well as a great opportunity to spend time together.
We strive to make learning fun and hands on to take into account pupil’s differing abilities and interests. The children will also be given the opportunity to share their learning with the rest of the school and parents/carers through regular Class Presentations.
