Expectations in Year 5


In year 5, there is plenty of exciting and interesting experiences already planned and even more to come, and with this many challenges to improve our learning and our growth. This means everyone needs to be raring and ready to go in September to start our year 5 adventure.

Children will start the day with some independent activities before collective worship, which are to be completed in their books. 

Children will need their water bottles in school for the classroom, they will also need to bring their PE kits in school on the first day ready for PE on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.

Attached is the timetable for year 5:


Rights Respecting Article: Article 29 (Goals of education): Children’s education should develop each child’s personality, talents and abilities to the fullest. It should encourage children to respect others, human rights and their own and other cultures. It should also help them learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people. Children have a particular responsibility to respect the rights their parents, and education should aim to develop respect for the values and culture of their parents. The Convention does not address such issues as school uniforms, dress codes, the singing of the national anthem or prayer in schools. It is up to governments and school officials in each country to determine whether, in the context of their society and existing laws, such matters infringe upon other rights protected by the Convention.
