Y5 Preparation & Transition

 

What do we hope children can do as learners before Y5?

 

  • Start to have a longer attention span.
  • Become more interested in the world around them and find out how things work.
  • Start to deal with frustrations and conflicts in a more mature way
  • Develop more self-control, being able to recover from mood swings or outbursts more quickly
  • Punctuate sentences accurately, without prompting, with full stop and capital letter as a minimum
  • Remember homework, PE kit, swimming kit and water bottles on correct day, without support from parents
  • Support and encourage classmates, showing respect to others
  • Begin to show resilience in challenging situations
  • Actively participate in all lessons.
