Year 5 is a welcoming, stimulating and exciting year to be at Mary Exton! Our Year 5 teacher is Miss Voyce and our teaching assistants are Mrs Wills and Mrs Mayse. During the Autumn term, the children get the chance to go on their first overnight residential trip. Whilst at Burwell House, the Y5 children will become film directors as they plan and film their own TV shows, in a real studio, on the grounds of the Victorian House. During English, we explore a wide range a genres allowing ample opportunities for the children to write at length and for real purpose. We enjoy practical lessons such as science experiments, creating Egyptian jewellery and sewing our own cross-stitch Christmas ornaments. One of the loveliest parts of being in Y5 is becoming a Reception buddy; the Y5 children are matched with a reception child who they support until they move to secondary school and their buddy moves into Y2.
