Welcome to Year 5 - below are some useful attachments to support parents and carers.
Y5 Curriculum Meeting - please find a copy of the presentation shared with all parents in Sept. 2022.
Y5 Long Term Overview - at a glance this lets you see how each subject is mapped out across the year. Each half term there is a different project focus which links the learning together for Science, Geography, History, Art and DT. The Spring Term 1 project for Y5 is Alchemy Island.
To support each project there is an associated 'Knowledge Organiser'. These contain all the key facts and information that children need to have a basic knowledge and understanding of within the project. The organisers can be used both in school, and at home, as a starting point for discussion or the basis for further research, providing the children with the 'bigger picture' of a topic. Our belief is that the more children know, the more they will learn.
To support each project there is a recommended book list. These can be used in a number of ways - further reading opportunities for the children, additional research material, or simply reading for pleasure around the project. One or two specific texts may be used in class throughout the half term project - if so, teachers will let you know in advance.
If you are interested in a general book list for Y5 age children, then we recommend: Best Books for Y5
