Curriculum

In Year 5 we pride ourselves in creating a stimulating and enriching curriculum which meets our pupils’ needs. We have a strong emphasis on the social, moral, spiritual and cultural learning throughout our curriculum. It provides memorable experiences and rich opportunities for high-quality learning and wider personal development by focusing on skills for learning. It is a curriculum with overall breadth and balance which provides pupils with their full entitlement.

The Year 5 curriculum has been developed over the last two years to ensure that our pupils benefit from a highly coherent and relevant curriculum which promotes outstanding outcomes. The creative curriculum is planned around units which are designed to begin and end with a stunning moments that ‘wow’ pupils.

Homework

During the academic year, your child will have homework each week.  This is intended to help them consolidate the learning that takes place during lesson time.  It is important then that you allow your children time at home to complete these tasks and where you can talk to your child to ensure they understand the importance of them.

We also have a high regard at school for reading books.  All children have the opportunity to take a reading book home so please ensure that your child reads as much as they can.  One way of ensuring this is to get your child to read aloud to you each evening or on the weekend. This is further supported by our strong English curriculum and our ties with our patron of reading, Ally Sherrick.
