Glen Hills Primary School - Year 5 Curriculum 

Hello everyone. My name is Mr. Cocomazzi and I am delighted to be teaching Year 5 this year. I will be working alongside Mrs. Maddison, Mrs. Ridler and Mrs. Dickson to provide a positive environment for the class to thrive in. As a team, we have high expectations of the pupils and aim to develop important learning traits and a love for leaning within our students through fun, engaging and challenging lessons.


In Year 5 we will use a range of skills in order to succeed in the challenges that we face. In some tasks, we will be collaborating with peers to share and develop ideas through group work or class discussions. In other tasks, the children will be developing their independence through taking ownership of their own work and the process needed in order to succeed.


In Literacy this term, we will be learning to write a range of fictional and non-fictional genres. This includes non-chronological reports, explanation texts and myths or legends.


In Maths this term, we will be aiming to secure and develop the children’s understanding of place value whilst increasing the fluency of their times tables recall.


This term, we will be learning about our local community, its history and the impact that the film industry has had on its growth and development over the years. We will be linking this to our art lessons through analysing and drawing architecture and creating artwork with perspective.


The children have made a positive start to life in Year 5 and I look forward to seeing their continued progress throughout the rest of the year.
