IAA Primary Curriculum Guide. Grade 5 Term 3. Welcome to Term 1.
Grade 5 Term 3
Welcome to the first term. After the long holidays it will take a couple of weeks for your children to settle back into routines. In this time, the teachers will informally assess your children to ensure that the planning fully meets the individual needs of each child.
In the pages that follow you will find the units that your child will study this term along with the expectations at the end of each unit. Not every child progresses at the same rate so please compare your child’s ability at the end of the unit to what he or she could do at the start.
If you have any questions about your child’s levels of attainment, please speak to the class teacher, who is the person who know your child best of all.
We will focus on two specific genres this term: Narrative and Non-fiction
We follow the Renewed Primary Framework for England. For further information please see:
