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

In the afternoons, pupils have two History or Geography lessons a week. Also, they have one session a week of Science, Music, PSHE and RE. The children have two PE lessons every week. On Carousel day the children take part in PE, Art and Computing. Children also develop key skills such as spellings, grammar and arithmetic in short sessions which can be applied across the curriculum.

We also expect children to read regularly at home. Pupils have access to the Boomreader online reading journal and are given the responsibility of recording what they read at home. Children are also expected to choose from a range of tasks to complete such as creating fact boxes about an author or writing a diary entry in the role of a character in the story. This year, pupils are encouraged to read books recommended by the school and class teachers.
