Year 5 is an exciting and challenging start to Upper Key Stage 2, where we strive to ensure that children are ready for Year 6. Personalised learning is the key stone for the work we undertake in Year 5.

We cover a wide variety of exciting topics in which we use the Year 5 curriculum to guide the children’s learning. Our aim is to provide the children with a rich and stimulating curriculum in which they can challenge themselves through promoting independent enquiry and enhance their cooperative learning.

Through the child’s learning journey in Year 5, we build on the already established skills to help them produce work of a high standard.

Throughout the year, children will be encouraged to develop their listening skills, work collaboratively and to always try their best in order to produce work they can be really proud of.

Homework: Homework is handed out every Wednesday and should be returned to school on Monday. PE: Wednesday and Friday 

Reading: Children should read three times a week. Books will be changed every Wednesday and Friday although children can borrow books from the classroom as well at any time.

Trips, events and visitors:

At Savile Park Primary we enrich the curriculum for our children by offering a range of educational visits and other activities that add to and complement what they learn in school. There are also a number of people who visit the school to support our work. Some visits relate directly to areas of learning for individual classes, whilst others relate to all our children.
