Year 5 Curriculum long term plan

Our teachers are Miss Colley and Mrs Hunter.

Our teaching assistant is Mrs Cashmore. 

Miss Colley will teach us on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Mrs Hunter will teach us on a Thursday and Friday. 


Routines in Year 5

Our school day starts at 8:50am and ends at 3:10pm. Please ensure that you are at school on time every morning. 

The children will need to bring their lunch box, water bottle, coat and reading diary with them to school every day. Reading diaries will get checked daily to ensure all children are reading at home regularly. 

This term our PE days are Monday and Thursday therefore children should come to school in their PE kit on a Monday and Thursday. 


Homework will be set on Seesaw every Wednesday and should be completed and uploaded by the following Tuesday. Spellings will also be set on Seesaw every Monday for the following Friday. Children should continue to read 5 times a week and reading diaries should be in signed and in school everyday. 



This year, Year 5 are incredibly lucky to be given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument with the tutors at Edsential First Access Music. As the children are learning more notes and new songs, they will be able to take their musical instrument home so that they can practise between lessons. When the children begin taking instruments home, it's really important that they remember to bring them into school every Tuesday for our lessons. Unfortunately if a child forgets their instrument, they will not be able to join in with the lesson that week so please do try to remember.  

Our summer topic is.. 

Sustainability - A fair world for everyone!
