Skills for Life
Year 5 Curriculum
Early Reading and Writing is taught using Read, Write Inc. Phonics.
Read Write Inc. is a method of learning centered around letter sounds and phonics, and we use it to aid children in their reading and writing.
Once children have completed this successfully they move on to ‘The Power of Reading’, a programme designed using high quality books to develop children’s writing skills.
We teach Maths by following the DFE approved framework through the use of “Collins Busy Ant Maths”. This is supported by a number of initiatives including Matheletics.
The rest of the curriculum is designed using Learning Journeys to develop themes of study, linking subject ideas where possible.

The History of Pantomime
Year 5 went along to the Methodist Church for a “Why Easter?” workshop. They had an egg rolling competition and they made crosses from coloured beads. They learned about the Easter story and at the end of the session paired up to answer a quiz sheet by navigating the church, finding out their answers by clues left around for them.
