Year 5

This is the first year of Upper KS2 and children move to the Year 5 and 6 block.  The curriculum becomes more challenging and exciting as children apply complex ideas to everyday experiences.  For example, a visit to Drayton Manor is used to investigate forces! 

Sport plays a major role in school life and a greater number of opportunities to participate in sporting events and fixtures begin in Year 5.
