In Year 5, we aim to make each day an enjoyable learning experience, and guide the children to have high expectations of themselves, their peers and the teachers. We reinforce and extend the learning and develop a growth mind-set. The children in year 5 are given every possible opportunity to reflect on their learning and will become more positive about what they know and what they need to do, in order to succeed. There is a real emphasis on being independent learners and children who feel very proud about their achievements.

We aim for every child to have a positive attitude to school.


Within Year 5 our class values are Goodness and Faithfulness.


We have planned an exciting curriculum for the year:

During the Year, a carefully planned Curriculum (using Government objectives) gives children the opportunity to enjoy their favourite subjects through history or geography, which then drives the literacy and other cross-curricular learning.

TERM 1 & 2: "Hot Chocolate" (Geography and History based)

Location of North and South America, with a focus on Brazil and its megacities and favelas. We will also consider the physical geography of South America, including the understanding of: biomes (rainforest); rivers and the water cycle.  In Science we will be learning about living things and their life cycles and space. The History aspect for this term will focus on the Mayan civilisation, who inhabited Central America approximately four thousand years ago. 

TERM 3 & 4: Invasion! (History based)

The Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for England to the time of Edward the Confessor. Looking at the initial raids and invasions by the Vikings and the resistance by the Anglo Saxons; further Viking invasions and the Danegeld; Edward the Confessor and his death in 1066; Battle Abbey and the final fight with the Normans.
