Teaching and Learning in Year 5
Take a look at our long term plan to see what we will be learning throughout the course of the year in Year 5:
Medium Term Plans
Our topics are: Brazil, Ancient Greece and The Vikings
You can find out more about these topics by clicking on the Medium Term Plan links below
We use our Knowledge Organisers throughout our topic to introduce new vocabulary and 'sticky knowledge' children will learn during Topic lessons.

Every year group in our school learns about a different country. By the end of Year 6, the children have compiled a Passport to the World containing the learning they have done about each country. In Year 5, our class country is Brazil. We will learn a lot about Brazil through our topic.
PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economics education)
PSHE education in school is promoted through our wide and varied curriculum which is carefully planned to enhance the children’s personal, social, emotional and economic development.
At Golcar J, I & N School, we use the PSHE Association’s three core themes: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. These three themes form part of a developmental, spiral curriculum. This means that the same key principles are revisited each year but are taken a step further to build upon the children’s knowledge and understanding. They permeate school life and are discussed regularly in assemblies and lessons, forming part of our day to day vocabulary.
This half term's PSHE learning
Our PSHE theme for the summer term is health and wellbeing.
