There are three Year 5 classes. Every morning, children have a Literacy, Mathematics and Reading lesson.

In the afternoons, children are taught History, and Geography, through the Connected Curriculum. Also, they have one session a week of Science, PE and PSHE. On Carousel day the children take part in music, art and RE/computing.

We also expect children to read regularly at home. All children are heard read at least once a week by the class teacher and target children are listened to more frequently.

Curriculum information

The following are the curriculum letters sent to all parents which detail the subject areas that are covered.

Other Information

Year 5 children need to bring their reading books and diaries every day, please ensure reading diaries are kept up to date when they read at home.

All money needs to be sent in with your child in the morning in a clearly labelled envelope with their name, class, the amount of money and what it is for. Dinner money needs to be paid at the beginning of each week.

If you have a problem and would like to speak to your child’s teacher, feel free to speak to them before or after school. If a teacher is not free to talk at that time, they will arrange a different time with you. If you are unable to arrange this personally with the class teacher, please contact the office and we will get back to you ASAP.
