Longlevens Junior

Welcome to Year 5

The Year 5 teaching team: Miss White, Mr Wheeler, Miss Reynolds and Mrs Hansen (Y5 Team Leader) welcome you to our Year 5 web page. 

Our aim is to provide the knowledge needed to help pupils build on what they have already learnt and to help them make further sense of the world around them.  At this stage of their primary education, Year 5 pupils are expected to take responsibility for their personal organisation; develop team work and co-operative skills; be able to communicate effectively using spoken language and become independent learners.

Over the course of the year, there will be trips, many visitors and an opportunity to complete a Bikeability course, as well as enrichment events, like our ‘Excellence Project’: combining Art and Poetry.  At the heart of everything we do, our goal is for all the children to ‘Aim High and be the best they can be’.

Please visit the Year 5 page regularly; it will be updated with our topic webs and weekly home learning for Maths and English. In addition, we will add photos and examples of pupils’ work to give you a little window of life in Y5.  

If you have any questions or concerns during the year, your child’s class teacher will always be happy to help, however, in the event that you need further help or advice then please contact Mrs Hansen, our Y5 Team Leader.

We look forward to sharing with you the exciting learning opportunities we have planned throughout the year.

Mrs Hansen and the Year 5 team.
