Work for children in Year 5
Throughout Key Stages One and Two children we teach the National Curriculum and this is taught through topics. All children are taught Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar on a daily basis.
We teach phonics through Little Wandle and develop reading skills through specifically targeted age appropriate books. We do not follow one particular reading scheme but ensure children have a range of good quality books.
The Science curriculum is based on the Kent Scheme of Work.
The PE Curriculum is based on the scheme ‘The Power of P.E.’
Each class in Key Stage 2 is taught French on a weekly basis.
RE is taught using the Kent Agreed Syllabus 2017 -2022. In addition to collective worship, 5% of the school’s annual timetable is dedicated to RE.
During Year 5 pupils look at the following key questions: ‘Why do some people believe God exists?’, ‘If God is everywhere, why go to a place of worship?’ and ‘What does it mean to be a Muslim in Britain today?’
