Striving for




Year 5

Mrs Jinks

In Year 5 this year our classroom and reading corner is designed around the text ‘The Invention of Hugo Cabret’ which is a wonderful enchanting story about an orphan living in the Parisian train station in the 1930s. Hugo has overcome a variety of challenges to find out the mysteries in his life. We took this idea and created the train station and a curiosities corner with objects linked to the book.

In Year 5, we understand that learning and progression is paramount, throughout the course of the year we learn and over learn many concepts within a broad and balanced curriculum; please see the overview for a full range of learning opportunities over this term.

Our learning environment mirrors with importance of learning and progression with bright working walls that are used regularly as a visual prompt, enhancing pupil independence and use 3 before me strategies; driving confidence and ensuring success.
