Year 5

In Year Five, children are provided with a wide range of exciting opportunities and experiences to help them develop into mature and confident individuals.  We feel that this prepares them for the challenges of Year Six and ultimately secondary school.

Some of the many exciting events that we hope to run this year are:

  • Visiting Leicester Space Centre.
  • Activities with our Buddies.
  • Residential trip to Gulliver's Valley.
  • Stargazing Sleepover.
  • Bikeability

                                                    ... and much much more!
