If you are isolating due to Covid-19 please access BBC Bitesize - Key Stage 2 - Year 5 and access the work relating to the topics listed below. 

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 explore 'Life in the Risen Jesus' and during the second half term we will explore 'Other Faiths'

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: The Island at the End of Everything and Kensuke's Kingdom.

We will also learn to write many fantastic diary entries and information texts.

Punctuation and Grammar

Please make sure that you can recognise and explain:

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


New spellings are given out on a Tuesday and the children are tested on these spellings the following Tuesday. Spelling lists are based on Y5 curriculum spellings and the rules we are learning in class. It is really important that the children learn their spellings and apply them in their writing. 


This term, Year Five will focus on:

  • Fractions
  • Decimals and Percentages
  • Properties of Shape
  • Position and Drection 
  • Convering Units
  • Measurement

The children have a Times Table test every Wednesday and a Times Table Champion is chosen and celebrated as part of our school award assembly on a Friday morning. It is really important that children in Year 6 know all their Times Table facts up to 12 x 12 and also the division facts e.g. 144 รท 12 = 12. Please keep practising these regularly at home.
