The children in Year 5 are learning how to be independent learners. As the year progresses the children are expected to take on more responsibility within the school community including; being reading buddies with younger children and taking on specific roles within the classroom.

Year 5 are very fortunate that they participate in a number of extra-curricular activities including; cultural days, art days and trips associated with current topics.

We hope that all Year 5 children will enjoy the year, always striving to be the best they can be so that they are ready for their transition to year 6 and the added responsibilities which come with this.
