We follow the National Curriculum 2014. You can access information about the curriculum for Year 5 in the documents below. If you require any further information about the curriculum you can access the Department for Education website or contact school.
In line with national guidlines, pupils will study the four areas of Mathematics. These are number, measurement, geometry and statistics. Pupils will be taught to:
Number - read, write, order and compare numbers to at least 1 000 000; interpret negative numbers; round numbers up to 1 000 000 to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10 000 and 100 000; solve number problems and practical problems; read Roman numerals to 1000; add and subtract whole numbers with more than 4 digits using formal written methods; round numbers to check answers; solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems; identify multiple and factors; recall prime numbers to 19; multiply 4 digit numbers by one or two digit numbers using written methods, including long multiplication; multiply and divide numbers mentally; divide 4 digit numbers by one digit numbers using the written method of short division; recognise square numbers and cube numbers; solve number problems; compare and order fractions; idenfity equivalent fractions; recognise improper fractions and covert to proper fractions; add, subtract and multiply fractions; write decimals as fractions; compare and round decimals with two decimal places, recognise percentages and write them as fractions.
Measurement - covert different units of metric measures; measure and calculate perimeter; use approximate equivalents between metric units and imperials units, calculate and compare the area of rectangles; estimate volume.
Geometry - identify 3D shapes, including from 2D representations; know angles are measured in degrees; estimate and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles; draw given angles and measure them in degrees; use the properties of rectangles to find missing lengths and angles; distinguish between regular and irregular polygons; describe and represent the postion of a shape following a reflection of translation.
Statistics - solve comparison, sum and difference problems using inofrmation in a line graph; complete, read and interpret information in tables.
The children will be engaged in writing activities across both fiction and non-fiction genres. They will also enhance their progress in this respect through focussed grammar lessons. Spellings will be given out as homework and tested the following week. Most children will be asked to select a suitable reading book, either from school or home, and this needs to be brought to school everyday.
