Year 5

Year 5 is a very fun-filled and important year at our school. In Year 5, there is time to consolidate learning from Key Stage 2 so far, as well learning new content we will need to help support us when we reach Year 6. 

In Year 5, our morning consists of the following subjects: 

  • Handwriting 
  • Maths 
  • English 
  • Guided Reading 

During the afternoon our learning is focused on the following: 

  • RE 
  • Science 
  • History or Geography (dependent on which subject we are focusing on for the half term) 
  • PSHE 
  • Computing 
  • PE 
  • Spanish 
  • Music  

In our classroom, you will find a happy learning environment, where all children are encouraged and engaged in their learning to help reach their full potential. The teachers have high expectations of us; to always try our very best 

Year 5 and 6 are very special years for us at St Joseph’s, as they are what we call ‘Sacramental Years’.  

This means that we are getting ready to receive a very special sacrament, which is a gift from God. Every second year, Years 5 and 6 work together to prepare to make their Confirmation. Confirmation is a very special sacrament, as we renew the promises that were made on our behalf at Baptism, this time making them for ourselves. It allows us to be full members of the church. 

Our Catholic faith is at the centre of all we do, and we start and end each day with prayers. On a Monday and Tuesday morning, we gather together in faith during assemblies and prayer and liturgy. Every other week, each year group celebrates mass with other year groups, with the opportunity to read and lead the Mass. In Year 5 and Year 6 the children who have made their First Holy Communion and Confirmation can also support and help Father serve our school masses as altar servers.
