Curriculum Overview



In Year 5, the children’s learning journey continues through themes such as The Amazon Rainforest, Inventors and Inventions and Space, which, link to all areas of the curriculum.


Below you will find details of our curriculum and overviews of what we are currently studying.


Homework Expectations


Children will receive weekly homework. This will be sent home on a Monday to return the following Friday.




Children have weekly spellings which they will learn during the week in class. A copy of these spellings will also be sent home for children to practice. Children will have a quiz on these spellings every Friday.




Although children are immersed in high quality texts at school, children are also expected to read at home every night. Year 5 children should still be encouraged to read aloud as well as reading independently. Please take 10-15 minutes to read with your child and talk to them about what happens in the story. Ask them to predict what might happen next and how characters might feel and why.
