Year 5 Curriculum

Our experienced and highly dedicated teachers and assistants in Year 5 pride themselves on their creative approach to teaching. We continue to build upon children’s prior knowledge in Lower KS2 and strive to embed a love of learning that encourages all children to be self-motivated, inquisitive and happy learners.  We recognise that every child is special and unique. Working closely together, teachers plan and deliver creative lesson that cater for pupils of all abilities and dispositions. We have a dedicated team of support workers who help pupils where needed.

We strive to create a stimulating classroom environment, which is steeped in mutual respect.  Year 5 teachers work very closely with our Year 6 team.  The teachers plan and deliver lessons that prepare children for next year’s SATs in a creative and fun way.  Children are immersed in a plethora of extra curriculum workshops and activities in science, art and sport as well as visits to Hayle School for exciting induction sessions. We encourage creativity in every area of the curriculum and endeavour to foster a love of the arts through drama, dance, literature and music.

We also ensure that the children have the skills they need to be a successful member of our modern British society. We ensure they have an understanding of different beliefs and cultures and learn acceptance, tolerance and respect towards others.

By the end of Year 5 we want our pupils to:

  • Be successful, self-motivated and dedicated learners
  • Assess their own attitude to learning and how to take positive steps to achieve their full potential.
  • Begin to recognise the important role they can play as a responsible and successful citizen
  • Show the highest level of courtesy and respect to all members of our school community and beyond
