The children in Year 5 are in Hawthorn Class and their class teacher is Mr Dowel. Mrs Wykes supports the children.
In Hawthorn Class we like to aim high in all areas of our learning so that every child can achieve their full potential. Although we work really hard, we still make time to enjoy each other’s’ company and you will always hear laughter coming from Hawthorn Class.
The learning in Year 5 is organised in such a way that the children have lots of input into their learning experiences. We follow Talk for Writing in English lessons, White Rose in Maths and reading taught with whole class guided reading. The children in Year 5 very much enjoy understanding where they are at in their own learning journey. In other areas of learning, we follow an enquiry based approach where the children are introduced to themes through a ‘Big Question’. This ignites interest and promotes the children to ask further questions which are explored through answering the Big Question. For every lesson, from English to computing, there are 4 levels of challenge and the children choose the level they would like to work at. One of the areas of learning we are especially proud of is Enabling Enterprise. Within these lessons we develop skills such as team work and leadership through creating projects including a school art gallery.
