Year 5

The Year 5 team consists of three teachers – Mrs Jennings, Miss Hill and Mr Woodcock – who are assisted by Mrs Curry, Mrs Clarke, Mrs Shortland, Mrs Ebb and Miss Henesy. Miss Swords can also regularly be found teaching in Year 5. Da Vinci’s teacher, Miss Hill, 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.
