Year 5 is our children’s penultimate year in primary school. It is a time for consolidation, challenge and preparation. In Year 5, we pride ourselves on nurturing the children’s independence, confidence and resilience as they enjoy a challenging and stimulating learning programme that is designed to stretch and inspire.

Please check the calendar and ClassDojo regularly and keep your contact details up to date with the office.

The Class 5 curriculum is heavily linked to historical, geographical and scientific topics, which are as follows:

Advent 1: The Ancient Islamic Civilisation

Advent 2: Mountains of the World

Lent 1: The Kingdom of Benin

Lent 2: Space

Pentecost 1: The Tudors

Pentecost 2: Conservation and Climate Change

At the beginning of each topic, each child will be given a Knowledge Organiser, which is used as the basis of their learning and homework tasks for that term. These can be found in the Knowledge Organiser section below.

We operate a two-week timetable which can be found here: Class 5 Timetable 2023
