St Luke's Primary

Year 5 Topics

The contents of this page are revised and updated half-termly and are designed to give pupils the opportunity to further their learning at home.

The topic overviews below provide information about the skills and activities that children are expected to learn:

Autumn 1: The Anglo-Saxons in England

Autumn 2: The Vikings in the U.K.

Spring 1: The U.S.A. - Fact or Fake News?

Spring 2: Amazon Explorers

Depending on the length of a half term a topic may change before the end of the half term or run over into the following half term slightly. This helps us to ensure that children have the opportunities to access a broad and balanced curriculum.

As part of our knowledge-endowed curriculum, we create Knowledge Organisers for each of our topics, which are shared with the pupils and detail the vocabulary and knowledge that they are expected to gain through that topic:

Autumn 1 Knowledge: The Anglo-Saxons in England

Autumn 2 Knowledge: The Vikings in the U.K.

Spring 1 Knowledge: The U.S.A. - Fact or Fiction?

Spring 2: Amazon Explorers
