Year 5

Year 5 Curriculum Overview

Autumn 1

Space

 

-Describe the Sun, Earth, and Moon as approximately spherical bodies

 

-Use the idea of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night and the apparent movement of the Sun across the sky

 

Autumn 2

Space

 

-Describe the movement of the Moon relative to the Earth

 

-Describe phases of the Moon and lunar eclipse

 

-Describe the movement of the Earth, and other planets, relative to the Sun in the Solar System

 

-Explain how seasons happen

 

-Space technology and Space missions

Spring 1

Animals Including Humans

 

-Describe the changes as humans grow to old age

 

-Describe the differences in the life cycles of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect, and a bird

 

Spring 2

Life Cycle of Plants

 

-Describe the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals

 

-Describe the differences in the life cycle of animals

Summer 1

Forces

 

-Identify different types of forces including, magnetism, applied, normal, tension and spring force

 

-Explain that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object

 

-Recognise and explain the difference between weight of an object and its mass

 

-Understand that the weight of an object varies on different planets due to the change of the gravitational force

 

-Identify the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction

 

-Recognise that some mechanisms, including levers, pulleys, and gears, allow a smaller force to have a greater effect

 

Summer 2

Properties of and Changes in Materials

 

-Compare and group together everyday materials based on their properties, including hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity, response to magnets

 

-Know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution

 

-Use knowledge of solids, liquids and gas to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporation

 

-Give reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, wood and plastic

 

-Demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes

 

-Explain that some changes can result in the formation of new materials, and that this kind of change is not usually reversible, including changes associated with burning and the action of acid on bicarbonate of soda
