Welcome to Year 5

Year 5 at St Christopher’s is a happy and purposeful place where pupils are confident and motivated learners. All our pupils have a good, positive attitude to work, to life and to other people and we encourage them to have an awareness of the needs of all whom they meet. Every pupil is encouraged, taught and challenged to work hard and learn lots!

Year 5 has its own distinctive atmosphere and learning environment, this is enhanced by the creative use of the central Activity Street as a learning hub. Classrooms are bright, colourful and stimulating learning environments, packed full of topical interactive displays and the children’s work. All classrooms have interactive whiteboards, computers, access to the internet and the school network.

Pupils work predominantly with their class teacher and receive specialist teaching in native or non-native Arabic, French, DT, Art, Music and PE, and enjoy swimming as part of the curriculum. In addition, all the classes have timetabled lessons in a fully equipped ICT suite.

Topic themes include; The Aztecs, The Tudors, and a geographical comparative study with each class selecting their own choice of country to study.

Our Year 5 pupils contribute to fund raising opportunities throughout the year as part of our “Go Global united world school’s ” school build a school  project to in Cambodia and take an active part in community service projects. Our Year 5 pupils’ main service project is the creation of backpacks filled with basic toiletries, food, phone cards, as well as some treat items. These are then distributed  to our cleaning staff.

Lessons in the classroom are regularly enhanced with visitors to the school and trips to various places of interest in and around Bahrain. Our school calendar is always full of events, trips and activities, from experiencing a Tudor Feast on Tudor Day to creating Aztec masks on Aztec Day. Trips range from a visit to the Science Centre to a tourist excursion around the island, taking in the most famous landmarks and attractions the island has to offer.
