In Year 5, we aim to make each day an enjoyable learning experience, and guide the children to have high expectations of themselves, their peers and the teachers. We reinforce and extend the learning and develop a growth mind-set. The children in year 5 are given every possible opportunity to reflect on their learning and will become more positive about what they know and what they need to do, in order to succeed. There is a real emphasis on being independent learners and children who feel very proud about their achievements.
We aim for every child to have a positive attitude to school and go home full of enthusiasm about what they have learnt that day.
During the Year, a carefully planned Curriculum (using Government objectives) gives children the opportunity to enjoy their favourite subjects through history or geography, which then drives the literacy and other cross-curricular learning.

The History aspect for this term will focus on the Mayan civilisation, who inhabited the South American continent approximately four thousand years ago.
