Year 5 Maths Curriculum

Year 5 English Curriculum Overview

Year 5 Spelling and Grammar

To support our understanding of our topics we have planned exciting visits which will enrich our learning and give our children the opportunity to develop their social skills.

Our visits for this year are:

  • Bewerley Park - Outdoor Education Centre
  • A 3 day residential to Lindisfarne
  • Fountains Abbey for a workshop "A day in the life of a monk"
  • Mosque and National Media Museum

In Year 5 children are encouraged to read every night and record this in their reading diaries.

All children have access to a wide variety of books. Children have the opportunity to choose a book of their choice and also a book levelled at their ability. Parents can support their children's learning through reading with them every day, taking children to the local library to read about our topics, and by practicing maths with them. 

Supporting your child at home - Information for Parents

We hope that you can join us each week for our class celebration, when you are invited to share and celebrate learning and see our certificates and rewards being presented.

You are welcome to join us for Welcome Worship. These special worship sessions are led by the children once per term. Join us in the Chapel after drop off for some refreshments and the children will come along to lead worship - its' a great way to catch up with other parents in the class too. Our Welcome Worship dates can be found in our diary dates.

We welcome parental involvement in the life of our school. If you are able to visit the school or help in any way, please contact your child’s class teacher.

Lindisfarne Visit 

We begin year 5 by taking the children to Lindisfarne for 3 days and this forms the basis of the learning challenge for most of the autumn term. This residential provides ample opportunity to learn many aspects of the curriculum and also allows children to explore the link between our school and Holy Island through the life of St Cuthbert.

 

 

If you have any questions about year 5, please do not hesitate to come and see me, call me or send me an email.
