Year 5 - Kestrels

Welcome to Year 5 and Kestrels! 


In 2021 year 5 will be taught by Ms Rogers with Mrs Mills as the Teaching Partner. 




Year 5 is taught by Mr Wootton and Mrs Thwaites. Mrs Mills is our Teaching Partner.

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 scientific based and called 'Destination Earth'.

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.
