A warm welcome to Year 5. An exciting year full of opportunities to live, learn and grow in Jesus.
Our motto in Year 5 is ‘Be Smart, Think Smart’. We are developing our critical thinking skills, along with trying new things and sometimes failing. We see failure as a positive thing because learning from our mistakes is a big part of how we grow! We look forward to a motivating and challenging year!
St Teresa's offers a thematic approach to the curriculum, where we largely teach through topics or themes so that the work pupils do in different subjects is related. Additional work is planned in Mathematics and English and this is increasingly the case as your child gets older. A topic usually covers a term or half-term.
Our reading schemes are:
- Sounds Write
- Oxford Reading Tree
- Ladybird Books Read It Yourself
- Start Reading
- Read Zone
- Big Cat Books
- Reading with Phonics
- Fairytale Phonics
