Year 5

Welcome to Year 5

Year 5 is an exciting and challenging year at Benyon Primary School, as we encourage the children to be more responsible and independent in their learning. This year is important in beginning to prepare the children for the transition to secondary school. There is a focus on team building and working co-operatively with their class members. We use investigations and problem-solving tasks to ensure the children become critical thinkers. In Year 5, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum and through continuous assessment, enable the children to make progress in all subjects and gain confidence.


During the year, we will be exploring a range of topics including: The Greeks, America and Forces and Space. In mathematics, there is an emphasis on fractions, decimals and percentages. In reading, there is a continued focus on developing inference skills and drawing conclusions from the text. The children are encouraged to read at home and discuss their book with an adult. Year 5 is an action packed, fast paced year with a wealth of interesting activities for the children to enjoy. We want the children to above all - have fun and be well prepared for their final year -Year 6, at Benyon Primary School!
