Welcome to Combs Ford Primary School

Year 5 Curriculum

As with other year groups, most of the children's work is covered through the topics (see below), though some areas of the curriculum are often taught discretely. Currently these are:

  • Music
  • R.E.
  • P.E.
  • other subjects may vary from term to term 

We operate a 2 year rolling programme of topics which are shared with Year Six, so your child will cover all of the topics shown below, but which topics they cover in each year group will depend upon where in the cycle we are.
