The Year 5 Team
Sarah Nelson Marianne Jenkins
Welcome to Year 5
Year 5 children are now members of Upper KS2, with greater expectations of self-organisation, time management, self-discipline and role modelling for younger children as well as each other.
Our curriculum is a bespoke, exciting learning journey. Children will travel through Year 5 in a vibrant learning environment, which will excite their imagination, develop their skills and stimulate curiosity. Opportunities for practical and collaborative learning provide challenges and experiences to learn without limits.
Your children develop a commitment to working together to achieve the very best outcomes in their learning. The children are encouraged to have high expectations of themselves and of each other, and to try their very best in everything they do.
As a school we celebrate perseverance, resilience and risk taking, ensuring children welcome challenge and are not afraid to make mistakes and in fact learn from them. We actively encourage an open door policy recognising that as parents/carers you will want to fully participate in your child’s progress and share in their achievements.
We look forward to working with you and your children in delivering a successful and memorable year at Claygate Primary School.
