Children in Year 5 follow our Key Skills Curriculum which is based on the National Curriculum but adapted to meet the needs of our children and provide as much enrichment as possible in terms of sport, music and the creative arts. Please see our curriculum overview on the “Curriculum” Tab at the top of our home page. Children are assessed continually throughout lessons (they don’t generally realise this is happening ; it isn’t pressured,) and their progress is monitored by their class teacher and Mrs Wood, the Principal. Teachers make occasional use of more formal assessments throughout the year.
Children in Year 5 all have access to IPads and Lap Tops and all children use “Bug Club” (Active Learn,) online.
