Welcome to Year 5 Documents Y5 Welcome Meeting Y5 Word List Y5 Long Term Planning Grid The Y5 teachers (Mrs Bryant, Mrs Clark & Miss Sidgwick-Dawson), along with Mrs Thwaites and Mrs Simpson (teaching assistants), would like to extend a very warm welcome to the new academic year. We are all aware that changes have taken place but exciting topics studied across the curriculum are bound to stimulate and enhance learning: Earth & Space, Rainforests & Local History of Middlesbrough to name just a few. Optional homework is now available online and spellings are available via Parentmail. Remember to keep up to date with what’s happening by following us on Twitter – @Y5CRA We are also contactable through firstname.lastname@example.org Here’s looking forward to an enjoyable year! Mrs Clark, Mrs Sidgwick-Dawson & Mrs Bryant Our broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum has been extremely carefully created and sequenced as a result of whole school curriculum planning meetings. A general overview, long term plan, is available for your perusal below. This long term planning grid will tell you what topics are being covered in each of the subject areas throughout the year. Should you wish to gain a deeper insight into what these topics contain, information is available on all our subject pages that will inform you further about what skills and knowledge they will gather as they proceed. More detailed knowledge is available on our subject pages as we feel this shows you how knowledge is expanded upon as the children move through school and how skills are progressed from one phase to another.
