In Year 5, we work hard on developing the children as independent, goal-oriented learners who adopt growth mindsets and have open minds towards challenges. Students set goals, which are discussed with teachers, so they can work towards achieving in their learning. These goals are reflected upon through peer discussions, self-reflection, and when conferring with the teacher, within which students consider achievements and areas for continued development. All students are given many opportunities to work with a range of children and teachers across the curriculum, where learning is differentiated and individual needs and learning styles are planned for.
In Year 5, students continue their journey into student leadership with the introduction of formalised leadership positions in the form of SRC (Student Representative Council). SRC Representatives have the opportunity to expand their leadership skills and prepare for potential leadership roles in year 6.
