Y5 Curriculum Overview

Welcome to our Year 5 curriculum page. We believe that children have a right to expect a curriculum which is fun, motivating, interesting and most importantly purposeful.

We think Acre Heads Primary brings something special to every child that walks through our doors – we offer an exciting curriculum experience to all our children. Our school ethos is built on our core values: BELIEF, DETERMINATION, RESILIENCE and TEAMWORK and enables children to achieve extraordinary things.

On this page, you will find further information about our Year 5 curriculum, useful videos, links and resources for starting Year 5 with insights into the activities and learning environments within the year group.

Contact your child’s class:

Please find below your child’s termly Knowledge Organisers which contains a summary of the knowledge and key facts Year 5 children will be learning during the year. Children will bring a copy of the organiser home at the start of each term and are encouraged to refer to these organisers throughout their learning.
