Leighton Primary School

Year 5

Here you can find out the curriculum expectations for Year 5 and learn about what they will be doing this term.

Summer term

The focus of our work this term will be based around our topic 'The Great Outdoors'.

In English, we will study the classic Canadian novel 'Hatchet'. This will be the prompt for a range of writing opportunities. We will visit 'Sherwood Forest' to learn about survival skills and shelter building.

The topic ties in well with the Year 4/5 drama production of 'Robin Hood' at half term. 

Our main focus in Maths will be on the development of reasoning skills and problem solving, applying these across the Year 5 maths curriculum.
