Mulberry Class - Year 5
Welcome to 2018 Mulberry Class!
Welcome to Mulberry Class, the class teachers are Mrs Winter and Miss Durkin. The class TAs are Mrs Pinder and Mrs Olliver.
Year 5 is the first of two year groups working in Upper Key Stage 2. We pride ourselves on encouraging the children to really develop their independence as we begin to prepare them for secondary education. However, there is a lot of fun and learning to be had before then so you will see all of our children embracing the Loxwood Way key characteristics of Collaboration, Perseverance and Happiness. The children make great strides in their progress as they take on a greater role in developing their own learning, self assessing and identifying their next steps. We are very focused on developing the necessary skills in maths and English but ensure that there is plenty of opportunity for the children to explore and apply these skills across the curriculum. Our Topic themes in Year 5 are: Into the Light, Mayan Culture, Home and Away - watch this space as we fix Brexit! and It's a Wonderful Life - with lots of opportunity for Geography, History, Science,Art, Music and Design Technology within that. We also benefit from dedicated sports and games coaching throughout the year.
- PE is on Wednesday and Friday
