Welcome to our Year 5 Class!


Year 5 Curriculum Presentation- September 2020

Learning from home:


Week beginning 4th January 2021:

As we are back to home learning I have uploaded all of our learning onto TEAMs for you to use. I will upload the documents here too for the first few days whilst we are all getting used to the new system. Remember you can write on your own notebook to send me a message. Please ask for help if you need it. Remember to keep reading (some links below if you need online texts) and practising your times tables on TT Rockstars.  See the link page below this section. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and I look forward to seeing you all soon. Stay safe and happy. Thank you, Mrs Ratcliffe.


This is a support for pupil learning where they are having to self-isolate yet are themselves well enough to work and learn from home. If you have difficulty in accessing this, please contact the school office so we are able to download for you some of the resources at an appropriate time if your child is in the situation of having to self-isolate. 



Welcome to our Year 5 class page. We hope you find this page informative and interesting. We will be adding more over time but you can find out lots of information about our class here. Weekly homework, spelling lists and termly Creative Kickstart homework will be posted for you but also key information about our learning will be shared with you. Scroll to the bottom to see some interesting pictures in our class gallery! Thanks for visiting, Year 5 children and Mrs Ratcliffe. 

Curriculum Subjects


Upper Keystage 2 - Year 5 


The children in our Year 5 class are taught a wide variety of subjects and topics from the National Curriculum. They are assessed using Milestone 3 which assesses their understanding of the topics taught. Throughout upper key stage 2 they will be assessed using a basic, advancing or deep understanding of their learning, using the milestone criteria. 

What subjects do we cover?

• English: Writing, Reading and Communication
• Mathematics: To know and use numbers, Multiplication and division, fractions, properties of shape, position, direction and movement, measures, statistics and algebra
• Science: working scientifically, biology, chemistry and physics
• Art and Design Technology
• Computing
• Music
• History
• Geography
• Physical Education
• Religious Education
• Personal development and Citizenship, including our school Christian values
• MFL- French

Although subjects are considered discrete we teach as much of the curriculum as possible through themes and topics throughout the year.
We focus on our school Christian values throughout Year 5 and 6 and develop the children’s roles within school through giving them jobs to do.

This is our school. With God’s help we care for one another, are curious in our learning, and know we are all loved.


Luke 10:27  'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbour as yourself.'
