Learning In Year Five
Year Five is another exciting Year. Expectations continue to be high both on personal,academic targets and age appropriate social and emotional independence. Children take more responsibility this year and are expected to be positive role models for the younger years. The time set aside for homework increases slightly (see Homework Policy) and the expectation that it is both completed and handed in on time remains.
