Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!

Oak Class is taught by Miss Emma Thurston.

Year 5 is the first year in the Upper Junior part of the school. While in Year 5, the pupils are given more responsibilities, such as buddying up with a pupil in KS1 to support them with their reading and mental maths skills. Pupils build on skills learnt in previous years to become more independent in their learning, such as researching information to help learn about Queen Victoria.

The topics that are taught in Year 5 are:

– The Victorians

– Space

– Natural Disasters

– The Ancient Greeks

– Enterprise

To help inspire and engage the pupils with these topics, Year 5 have a Victorian day, visit the planetarium, meet with local business owners, set up their own business as part of the “Fiver Challenge”, visit local shops and have a Greek day.

Year 5 also have a weekly swimming lesson at the Westgate Leisure Centre and work alongside students from Chichester University in order to compete in a Mini Olympics festival held in June.

Mrs Claire Tunnell and Mrs Nicky Carley are the teaching assistants who support the learning in Oak Class.
