The Year 5 & 6 Team
As the eldest children in school, the pupils – in this team – take great pride in being role models to the younger children. Our team consists of 120 children, 4 teachers, 5 teaching assistants and a wonderful Maths Specialist: Mrs Casey. The children that I am lucky enough to spend my days with enjoy learning and it is the mission of all of the staff in this team to ensure that the children become the best learners that they can be in their last years of primary school. Teachers make lessons engaging and linked to interesting topics whilst the children strive to be become responsible, independent learners that are ready for secondary school. The children know that the moto in this team is to work hard not for their teachers, but for them!
There are lots of extra opportunities in Years 5 and 6 for the children to develop their talents: they especially enjoy swimming, singing, football and being sports leaders! Our Year 5 – 6 football team play in a league with other schools in the local area. It is a great chance for the children to work with new people and see other schools. The team are playing really well in all their matches and demonstrating great team work. After school clubs are another feature of HLC that the Year 5 and 6 pupils take full advantage of. There are a range of activities for them to get involved in so the children get to work hard and play hard.
