Year 5 - Kestrels

Welcome to Year 5 and Kestrels! 

Year 5 is taught by Mr Wootton and Mrs Thwaites. Mrs Goddard and Miss Adcock are our Teaching Partners.

The children in Year 5 are now in upper Key Stage 2 and the increased expectations reflect this. In a supportive and caring environment the children are challenged to continue to build on their learning skills, knowledge and understanding so they can truly succeed in their learning and achieve well in Year 6. 

 Our current theme is 'An Ancient Legacy' where we are focussing on the Ancient Egyptians and the legacy they have left behind.

Assessment

There are no statutory assessments carried out at the end of Year 5, however teacher assessments are used to make judgements about how well your child is performing in reading, writing, maths, science, speaking and listening and spelling, punctuation and grammar throughout the year.
Here is a video which gives details of the type of national formal assessments which take place in May when pupils are in Year 6.
