The Year Five classroom is a warm, fun and welcoming place to be where lots of fast pace, exciting and challenging learning takes place. We aim for all lessons to be interactive, enjoyable, and memorable and the children are encouraged to show independence from the moment they enter the classroom. Year Five pupils are given lots of responsibility and are expected to take ownership of their effort when learning. Class responsibilities, in the form of monitors, are established early on in Year Five – the children love these jobs and fulfil their jobs well. With support from teachers and family at home, the children will work hard on their goals and achieve to their own true potential. Year Five is alive with reading and we take every opportunity to read and thoroughly enjoy our termly texts. Children are supported to grow a love of reading, becoming readers who read for pleasure and purpose. Mental health and well-being are high priority in Year Five so we work hard to support the children to be happy and incorporate lots of humour and class jokes into our time together, wherever we can. We promote positive self-talk and resilience and guide children through any difficulties they face.
