What the children are learning this year

Year 5 enjoy a year full of varied learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom through the provision of a rich curriculum. Children in Year 5 are encouraged to become increasingly independent learners who are excited to go beyond the classroom.


School Trips

During Year 5 we do lots of learning outside the classroom including these trips:

Dorset Residential
Perhaps the most memorable trip for the children, three days are spent at the Cumulus Outdoor Centre in Swanage. For further information visit https://www.cumulusoutdoors.com/.

Closing the year and our Science project, with a day trip to Greenwich and the Royal Observatory and Planetarium.

Supporting Learning at Home

The learning the children are expected to complete at home has a clear focus on key skills that will not only enable them to make the expected academic progress but also foster those vital skills that they will need beyond their time at school. We therefore expect them to practice their times tables and read daily. We ask children to records their daily reading on the Go Read app.

Go Read  is used to monitor reading in school and at home. Children can update home reading themselves using the app or desktop log in.

Class Dojo is an online reward system and communication tool. Parents can contact teachers via the messaging tool. Please note that quiet hours are set by teachers and messages during the school day should be sent to the office.

Mathletics is an online teaching and learning resource. The children can access activities that they choose to support their learning. It is a fun environment which is used in class and can be accessed at home. Children can earn certificates as they learn and gain items for their Avatar.

If children are isolating at home, learning can be accessed via Google Classroom. Children have their own log on for this.

Online Safety

All children need to learn how to keep themselves safe online. Here are some things you can do:
CEOPS is the best place to go if you wish to report something inappropriate on the internet.
ThinkUKnow is where you can play interactive games and learn more about being safe online.
Kidsmart has lots of information about how you can keep yourself safe online.
