Year 5 Curriculum

The National Curriculum is a framework used to ensure that teaching and learning is balanced and consistent in key stage 1 and key stage 2.

The National Curriculum sets out the subjects taught as well as the knowledge, skills and understanding required in each subject.  It also provides standards or attainment targets in each subject and these are used by teachers to help measure your child's progress and plan the next steps in their learning.  In accordance with the law, the school curriculum meets all the requirements of the National Curriculum, plus the requirements for Religious Education set out by the local authority.

For further information on the National Curriculum please refer to the Department For Education National Curriculum.

Please visit our Subject Intent and Implementation pages for a more detailed breakdown of what will be taught in each subject in Year 5 and our Curriculum Overviews page for a summary of what will be taught in the current term.
