Year 5

The Year 5 team consists of three teachers – Miss Buckley, Mrs Lewis and Mr Carter – who are assisted by Mrs Curry, Mrs Shortland, Mrs Bird, Mrs Vincent and Miss Davis. Da Vinci’s teacher, Mrs Lewis, leads the Year 5 team.

When moving into Year 5, the children are joining South End Junior School’s ‘Upper Hub’. It is our aim to equip the children with tools to further develop their independence as learners and help them learn skills for life, which they can then apply to a variety of situations. As a year team, we endeavour to do this by providing engaging, purposeful and exciting learning opportunities and having high expectations of the children in terms of behaviour and work ethic. We strive for all children to achieve their full potential and be confident young people.

Our updated Year 5 long-term curriculum overview will follow shortly…
