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 4 and 5 were very lucky to watch a fantastic performance all about the history of Pantomime. The children had a very exciting time and got to learn about all of the traditional pantomime stories and take part in a very fun and interactive play. They learnt when to boo, why the characters enter the stage from certain directions and the spooky story of where ‘It’s behind you!’ came from. It was a very enjoyable afternoon!
These are our “Dance Fusion” entrants in their costumes before performing on stage for the first time. They did a fantastic job and made Chantry members of the audience very proud!

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.
