Y5 Curriculum Overview


In English, Year 5 will be focusing on the tale of Beowulf for Narrative Writing and describing settings and characters. The Viking topic will also help us to produce non-fiction writing and to organise historical information.

History — we will be learning about how Viking exploration changed parts of Europe. What impact did the Vikings have on life in Britain?

Art and Design — we will use Viking longships and shields as an inspiration for art and creating.  

In Maths, Year 5 will be learning calculations in more depth and applying skills to reasoning and solving problems. We will also be focusing on geometry and angles in more detail.
