Year Five

Welcome to the Year 5 area. In Year 5 children become even more independent and start to really take control over their own learning. In preparation for Year 6, children develop their skills of self-motivation and self-evaluation, helping them to use their successes and failures to make valuable learning decisions. Year 5 is also lots of fun and includes fascinating topics that take us all the way from crime and punishment in Roman Britain to The Moon!
