Year 5 (UKS2)

Welcome to the Year 5 Website Page

This term in Year 5 our Big Question is:

What did the Victorians do for us? 


This half-term, we will be looking at Queen Victoria and the life of people in Victorian Britain. We will start by gaining knowledge and understand the standard of living in Victorian England in comparison to how we live now. To progress our understanding, we are connecting our Topic learning with our Reading and Writing studies, as well as other foundation subjects.


In English, we will be focusing on Victorian England. First, we will be writing a setting description of Victorian Derby followed by a character description of Queen Victoria. To finish the unit, we will be creating a balanced argument around whether children were the best workers, compared to adults. This will be tied to Reading by reading multiple texts about life in Victorian times and using our Reading skills to decipher the texts.


In Maths, the children will be continuing their work with decimals, to begin with. Afterwards, we will be moving onto geometry, where children will develop their understanding of angles and shape. 


In D&T, we are going to be making rag-rugs by hand. This is a traditional Victorian method of using materials to create furnishings.  


5A – Monday and Thursday

5B - Monday And Friday

5C – Monday and Wednesday

We have one PE session based on Real PE. In the second session, our focus will be Athletics.
