This term, our theme for learning is The Anglo Saxons and Vikings! We will be looking at how these groups of people shaped Britain and modern-day life.

Knowledge Organisers

Please see a more detailed overview of the learning in some areas of the wider curriculum. These knowledge organisers are shared with the children and provide parents with an opportunity to go through some of the key learning at home. In particular, we would ask that you support the children with their understanding of the key vocabulary for each curriculum area, as outlined in the knowledge organisers.

Reading in the Curriculum Year 5 Summer

Our school values are Respect, Resilience & Responsibility.

Our British Values Focus this Term

In our assemblies this term our British values will link to our school values of The Rule of Law and Tolerance for Others.

In class, our focus will be on the British values Mutual Respect, Individual Liberty and Tolerance of Those with Different Faiths and Beliefs. We will explore these values through our R.E. lessons in which we will study the Bahi’i faith, as well as in our Personal Growth lessons, in which we will be looking at what the word ‘consent’ means, and how to stay safe online. In our literacy lessons, we will will be looking at Malala’s story, and her fight for female education.


One of the seven outcomes we would like from our curriculum is for the children to develop their understanding of what it means to live in a diverse society such as Britain. To support that this term, we will be exploring the Bahi’i faith, and exploring Malala’s story/
