Year 5

Class 5RH


In Year 5 we learn about different subjects such as: Literacy, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Art, Design, PE, Modern Foreign Languages (French) and Music.



The children will be developing skills in writing, such as:

  • Selecting appropriate grammar and vocabulary, understanding how such choices can change and enhance meaning
  • In narratives, describing settings, characters and atmosphere and integrating dialogue to convey character and advance the action


For reading, the children will:

  • Continue to read and discuss an increasingly wide range of fiction, poetry, plays, non-fiction and reference books or textbooks
  • Increase their familiarity with a wide range of books, including myths, legends and traditional stories, modern fiction, fiction from our literary heritage, and books from other cultures and traditions
  • Recommend books that they have read to their peers, giving reasons for their choices



In Maths, children will be taught about different areas such as:

  • Number - place value
  • Addition and subtraction
  • Multiplication and division
  • Fractions (including decimals and percentages)
  • Measurement
  • Geometry – properties of shapes
  • Geometry – position and direction
  • Statistics

The children also have a further lesson of PE each week,  which is (for half a year) swimming. The children develop their skills in Art and Design and Technology through project work throughout the year. The children also have one lesson of Music each week, and are taught French by a specialist teacher.
