Our Curriculum 

At Pinehurst Primary School we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that provides the children with opportunities to Experience, Excel and Enjoy. We aim to foster a lifelong love of learning, through delivery a twenty first century education. A cross curricular approach to learning encourages the children to be independent, reflective learners and responsible citizens. We work closely with parents to support children’s learning. 

English and Maths skills that we will be developing in Year 5; 

English 

Reading

Children will be reading different texts in school during shared reading and in English lessons. In class, we are currently reading 'Who let the Gods out' by Maz Evans and every child has their own book to take home and enjoy.

Writing 

The children will be writing a range of fiction and non-fiction texts throughout the year.

Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation

Children will be focusing on Year 5 features such as parenthesis, relative clauses and varying their punctuation usage.

 

Maths 

The children in Year 5 learn maths through our mastery approach encouraging deeper thinking and understanding in their maths and where they can find maths being used in daily life.
 

The Wider Curriculum

This term we will be learning about;

The Ancient Greeks, Materials, Forces, Programming and much much more.

Please see our Curriculum news at the bottom of the page for more information. 

It will be a busy and fun filled year of learning.

Practical ideas to support your child 

  • Sharing books, reading with and to your child. 

  • Visiting places of interest, talking to your child about them, and encouraging them to ask questions. Places you may choose to visit: the library, country parks and local nature reserves, museums, etc. 

  • Making opportunities to play and work with others. 

  • Opportunities to be creative. 

  • Allow your child to problem solve, if they are experiencing a challenging situation, allow them time to try and solve it themselves before stepping in.
