PSHE in Year 5

From September 2020 it will be compulsory for all primary age children to be taught Relationships and Health Education. These subjects are designed to equip your child with knowledge to make informed decisions about their well-being, health and relationships as well as preparing them for a successful adult life. 

Each year the children will cover 3 common themes:

  • Relationships
  • Living in the wider world
  • Health and well-being

The grid below shows the topics we will be covering in Year 5.


Below are statutory spellings for Year 5/6. Each week we will ask you to learn a selection of these words. There are also some spelling strategies to help with learning the words.

Spelling Strategies


Below are the Year 5 National Curriculum reading objectives. These can be found in the front of your child's reading records. If you notice your child has used one of these whilst reading to you, you can use the code ( found down the side) and write it in their books. This is very helpful to us and it also supports you when hearing your child read.
