Y5 Preparation & Transition
View our Transition Year 5 2020 doc
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.
- Develop a strong moral sense of right and wrong and become increasingly concerned with fairness.
During Year 5 we hope that the children will be able to…
- Punctuate sentences accurately, without prompting, with full stop and capital letter as a minimum.
- Be able to tie shoe laces, top buttons and ties independently.
- Take care of own equipment – not losing pencils, rulers, coats, trainers etc.
- Remember homework, PE kit, swimming kit and water bottles on correct day, without support from parents.
- Tidy up after themselves and work together to look after the classroom environment.
- Support and encourage classmates, showing respect to others.
- Begin to show resilience in challenging situations.
- Actively participate in all lessons.
