Introduction to Year Five


In Year 5, children have the opportunity to gain a greater independence and confidence in their own learning. Children are increasingly encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning, as well as being responsible for organising themselves. Year 5 are encouraged to develop their ‘can do’ attitude and develop their growth mindset. Children are encouraged to demonstrate a variety of skills and qualities, such as perseverance, resourcefulness, collaboration and reflectiveness.


Our main Year 5 topics include:

  • Mexico and the Maya

  • Wild Waters

  • Anglo Saxons


We have the opportunity to visit Cadbury World in the Autumn term, to enhance our knowledge of the Mayan civilisation (and of course taste some tempting chocolate).

We also have an Anglo Saxon experience in the Summer term, where Hrothgar, the Anglo Saxon, visits St Nicholas and sets up camp in our school field. The children spend the day fully immersed in the Anglo-Saxon way of life, having the opportunity to handle items and hear traditional stories.
