Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

The penultimate year group at St John’s
During Year 5, the children will have the opportunity to undertake challenging work whilst enjoy themselves at the same time. The year promises to provide children with a rich variety of learning through lessons that will be taught to suit all types of learners. There is a large emphasis placed on encouraging independent work for all children. 

This year we will be covering many new and exciting topics in our Creative Curriculum. This includes: Stargazers, Off with her head, Scream Machine, Allotments and Pharaohs. Students will learn a range of areas of the curriculum through these topics.

In Year 5 the class will be given the chance to participate on a weekly basis in our Community Cohesion programme that links our children with Oakleigh Special School. The children will be involved in helping children and supporting them in their learning and development.

Towards the end of the year, the class will go on a school journey to Bude, Cornwall. Our stay there will feature a variety of unforgettable activities including canoeing, high ropes, surfing, body boarding, caving and rock climbing. The children will also have plenty of time to socialise with their friends and children from other schools. This trip is a wonderful experience for the students and will be remembered for years to come.
