Year 5 Curriculum Map - an overview of the Year 5 curriculum


Welcome to Year 5 2018/2019 !

We have started this half term with an exciting look into the world of chocolate. Our focus this half term will be on Fair Trade and the pupils have already begun discussing and writing about this important issue.


Mrs Kay teaches the class every Monday and Tuesday and Mr Jones teaches the class every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.


Home Learning

Every week children will receive a new set of spellings and a Maths homework task. They will be tested on these the following week. As the year progresses it is extremely important that you continue to revisit previous learning with your child to ensure that connections are made and that the learning is consolidated.  




Children should be reading at least 5 times a week for a minimum of 15 minutes with an adult or independently.  Yellow reading records should be signed every time a child is read with.  These should come to school each day and go home each night to record reading and will be checked by Mrs Garling or Mr Jones every Wednesday. Those children who read regularly and are showing progress will receive stickers for their Record of Success and House Points!


 Please ensure that they have their PE kit in school every day as sometimes it is necessary to change the times or days of PE lessons due to the weather.  During winter it is recommended that children have a pair of jogging bottoms and a school jumper or fleece for PE as it can be a bit chilly outside!


If you have any questions or concerns during the year please feel free to make an appointment to see Mr Jones or Mrs Garling or email us at:



We are looking forward to a great year of learning, Mrs Garling and Mr Jones
