Year 5 Curriculum

2018 - 2019

We have been busy planning lots of interesting topics to explore during the year! Have a look at our topic plans to see what we are learning about in Year 5.

Take a look at our overview 

In our topic this Autumn term, we will be looking at World War 2. We encourage children to research this area and as we explore the topic in class, investigate these areas deeper in their creative homework tasks!

Feel like a challenge in Maths? Then why not try to master our area of learning! In each area of Maths, we try to teach children the concept then allow children to 'master' this area by developing their skills. On our maths display, children can find 'challenge cards' they can pick up to further develop their learning!

In our Literacy area we are trying to look at different ways to approach a text. We are using 6 coloured thinking hats to develop our understanding of a chosen text.

Ambassador Awards 2018-2019

This year we have incorporated the Learning Passport within a document that recognises children’s achievements in school and the wider community. What is expected in order for children to achieve their ’Ambassador Award’ comes under 4 headings:

  • Citizenship
  • Relationships
  • Learning
  • Behaviour and conduct

Each section has elements that underpin the values that as a school we hold dear. We believe that learning is something that continues every minute of the waking day and it is important to recognise children’s achievements not only in lessons but beyond. Adults in school will discuss each section with the children and how they can meet the criteria identified; we are hoping that the children will be able to take some ownership of the passport themselves!

Have a look at the Ambassador leaflet to find out more and look through 'Steps to Success' passport the Year 5 children will be working through this year to help them achieve their Ambassador Awards!
