Year Five

In Year 5, our school curriculum includes: consolidation and practice of our red-lines; the continued development of attitudes and attributes; the 'Come & See' National Project for Religious Education; and, the 2014 National Curriculum. This curriculum is delivered through modules, both core and broadening, that address the prime areas of Religious Education, English, Maths and Science. The modules do not indicate lengths of time, but rather gather related themes. Within each module, the learning in the prime areas is uncovered, practiced and explored in the specific subject area and also through gaining, using and applying the knowledge, skills and understanding of other subjects of the NC, some of which will be taught discretely.

In History:

In Geography:

In French (Modern Foreign Language):

In Computing:

In Design & Technology

In Art:

In Music:

In Physical Education:

Some aspects of these subjects will be taught discretely and others will form the contexts for learning in the prime areas, but all can be supported through research and conversation at home, and visits that family may enjoy during the year.
