Year 5 Curriculum Coverage Map
Home Learning will be a project-based approach where the children will research and investigate a topic related to our learning in class. This will usually be linked to our current History, Geography or Science Topic. Guidance will be given with each project at the start of every half term with the submission date being the final week of the that half term. The children will share their Home Learning with peers so that we can learning from each other.
Spellings will be given out on each Friday and will be tested the following Thursday. Spelling lists will consist of the statutory Year 5 word list and three different spelling patterns. These spelling patterns will be repeated for three weeks. The spelling scheme is challenging at times but it does build on previously learnt words and patterns. To help with understanding I have put each spelling into context with an example sentence on the back of the spelling sheet. It is important that these spelling patterns are learnt to support the work we will be completing in class and to meet the expected learning objectives for the year group.
Times tables knowledge will support the work we do in Mathematics as we will be completing mental calculations and formal written method calculations for multiplication and division problems as well as applying these skills to fractions, decimals and percentages. Therefore it is crucial that they can recall the facts quickly without having to count up and down. To retain these facts and speed we will complete a weekly times table assessment. This will be an unseen test, which will change tables each week, and consist of twenty four questions, twelve multiplications and twelve divisions. The times table to be tested will be given out on Thursday and will be assessed each Wednesday.
