Year 5 Curriculum

Religious Education

In our RE lessons this term we will study two units of work. In the first half term we will be in Eastertide and our topic is Life in the Risen Jesus. In the final half term we will use the Diocese's resource to prepare for the Holy Sacrament of Confirmation. All children in Year 5 will complete the sacramental preparation in class and then parents will be able to register their child to formally receive the Sacrament in Autumn. 

As well as Curriculumn RE, we will pray and worship together daily. This beautiful time will give us chance to grow in faith, love and understanding of Jesus and deepen our personal relationships with Him. 


In English this term we will be reading a range of texts. We will begin by reading two books: Way Home and The Jungle Book.


We will also read and write different forms of non-fiction, including non-chronological reports and newspaper writing.

Punctuation and Grammar

Please make sure that you can recognise and explain:

There is a handy guide to all this here for adults.


Here is our spelling list. There will be a random selection of twelve spellings from the list each week. Tests will be each Thursday.


This half-term, Year Five will focus on:

The best website to use is mathsisfun, which covers everything that we need. Just be careful - the work goes up to GCSE level, so don't try anything too hard! RM Maths is also a great site for daily maths practise and every child has their own personal log-in so that they can work at their own level at home. 


In History we will be studying The Ancient Greeks. We will learn about many of the Greek Myths and the gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus. We will discover how people lived in the cities of Athens and Sparta and look at the Ancient Olympic Games.




In our Science lessons we will be learning about How humans change and develop.



In Geography we will be looking at Regions of Europe. We will continue to develop our Map skills and also look at the human geography of these places.
