The design, content, implementation and evaluation of our year 5 curriculum plays a key role in how we make our school vision come to life and enable all in our school to experience life in all its fullness. The ambitious breadth of our curriculum provision and the links we make across the curriculum through transferable skills and to personal development, including the development of emotional well-being, spirituality and a sense of community and responsibility, are very important parts of our curriculum design. Our curriculum reflects and supports our pursuit of academic excellence and concept knowledge building for all
At Millbrook we are very proud of our broad, balanced and stimulating curriculum. Year 5 teaching and learning is underpinned by the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. To find out about the aims of our curriculum and how we enrich our teaching in all subject areas please click on the curriculum vision under the curriculum tab.
Each subject is given separate dedicated time on the timetables to ensure subject knowledge and vocabulary is rigorously taught and subject specific skills are developed. A half term overview for each subject is created like the autumn 1 art example below.
The termly curriculum overviews for year five group (below) provide information about the main topics, knowledge and content to be taught in each subject and how this is structured over the term and year. Skills are also taught alongside the knowledge set out in the overviews; our teaching builds on skills taught in previous year groups as well as laying the foundations for the knowledge and skills to be taught in following years. Please ask your child's teacher for more information.
