Year 5/6

Year 5/6 Red Kite Class Introduction

The final years at primary school are precious. This is the time when children can really grasp an in-depth understanding of the curriculum so that they become fluent and confident in key skills, giving them the chance to explore their understanding further. All children learn how to be expert learners who enjoy their successes and have the self-motivation and curiosity to explore challenges. We believe that we can learn the most when we reflect on our mistakes so children are always prepared to have a go! We are all mathematicians, writers, artists and sports stars Above all, Year 5 and 6 is the time to ensure that our children have developed a strong set of values – spiritual, morally, socially and culturally – and these values are part of all that  we do in school and beyond.

Most of all, we want Year 5 and 6 to be packed full of memorable experiences and this year, like any other, have many opportunities to learn beyond the classroom. So, if you would like to see what we were are up to, please do organise to pop by and find out for yourself!
