Welcome to the Year 5 Curriculum Overview page
This year, we have an exciting curriculum packed with many opportunities to learn fascinating topics and build on new skills. As usual, we will start the year with our ‘Learning to Learn Week’ before getting immersed in a cross-curricular theme entitled ‘Allotments’.
Visiting interesting places, relevant to our learning, is a fundamental part of what we offer and how we learn, so we will will plan in local trips as well as some further afield. It is in Year 5, too, that our children are given the chance to visit Whitgift School for a week to extend their learning repertoire: they learn to play bongos, programme robots and get to grips with a foreign language such as Mandarin Chinese or Japanese.
Our Year 5 staff are looking forward to working with the children and parents, and we are confident that they will have an enjoyable and memorable year.
The Year 5 Team.
