Ash Class

Ash Teacher: Miss D Yates

TA: Mrs C Barraclough

In Year 5, we think it is essential to teach children the skills they need, and then provide them with opportunities to apply their skills and deepen their knowledge and understanding in each subject.

This year we have studied a variety of topics, which have been science, history or geography based. To build the children’s enthusiasm and bring their topics alive, we have included several trips and workshops throughout the year, as well as practical activities, art and D.T.

Alongside their academic skills, we also take time to develop the children’s emotional skills. This includes circle time and activities to develop their understanding of social situations, friendship groups and their own well-being.
