 Our Curriculum

In Year 5, we love to learn and our curiosity is fostered through our enquiry-based curriculum!

Please view the topics and key questions below to find out more about our learning:

Distance Learning

As of 5th January 2021, we are back to full distance learning.  We are using Class Dojo as our learning platform and every child and parent has their own log in.  If you change device or lose your password, then please contact school as soon as possible. 

We are aiming to stick to our usual curriculum as far as is possible but some elements, topics and objectives may have to change due to circumstances.

We will always do our best to provide all pupils with a full, rich and enjoyable curriculum to ensure that children do not fall too far behind during this difficult time of lockdown.

For a general overview of our weekly timetable, please see the document below. 

Dates for the diary

 Unfortunately, we are unable to say exactly when we'll be back in school as we are following Government lock-down procedures.  We will remain at home learning online until further notice.

What to bring to school this term:     

  • Full PE kit (see PE section below)                               
  • Reading book and reading record (every day)
  • Water bottle
  • Homework (Mondays)
  • Your inhaler if needed

 

PE

 

Please ensure that the children bring their kits to school every Monday and leave them in school all week so that they are ready for their lessons.

Gym/Dance

Your child will need a white T-shirt and black shorts. Leggings may be worn but must be above the knee for gymnastics. 

Outdoor Games

Pupils may wear tracksuit/jogging bottoms for outdoor games in cold weather.

Children should not come to school wearing any form of jewellery. Earrings should be removed. Long hair should be tied back and head scarves must be tight fitted for safety.

 No child will be exempt from taking part in lessons unless permission has been ought from the Head Teacher and the necessary medical forms have been completed.

 

Out of School Learning

Class Dojo    

We will be conducting lots of distance learning including homework and catch up work via the Class Dojo platform.

Homework:

Homework will be handed out every Friday to be completed and returned on Mondays.  Usually, the children will receive Maths and English homework as well as reading and spellings.  However, they are also expected to practise their times tables daily. Please support and encourage your children in their out-of-school learning.

 Home-school projects are also regularly set in order for pupils to give pupils the opportunity to transfer their skills, express their creativity and share their learning at home.

REMINDERS!

Reading

Children have their own reading books which should be brought into school every day and they are expected to read every night for 10-20 minutes.  This will help them to develop their fluency, expression, accuracy and comprehension skills. Parents are kindly asked to write a comment in their child's reading record after listening to them read. Your child will receive a new reading book by the end of each week if they have shown that they have read and understood it.
