In Year 5, we use all areas of the curriculum to enhance our topics and bring new learning alive through investigations and open-ended work so that our ideas and minds are stretched.

We enjoy the challenges of the Key Stage 2 Curriculum, embracing the cross curricular links of Art, Drama, DT, Music and P.E.

Whenever there is a spare moment in class, we read a range of engaging books and guided reading sessions weekly help to support our deeper understanding of texts!

Within our mathematics lessons, we are further embedding the children’s reasoning and problem solving skills which will equip them with fundamental life skills

During their time in year 5, we do our upmost to prepare our children for the challenges of the year 6 curriculum by giving them a solid academic and emotional foundation that they can build upon for their last year at primary school.
