About KS2

In Year 5, your child will continue to learn the Key Stage 2 curriculum. Compulsory national curriculum subjects at primary school include English, Maths, Science, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Art and Design, Music, PE, Swimming, ICT and Welsh.

Ysgol Derwen is moving towards implementing the new curriculum, which becomes statutory in 2022. The curriculum will become more child led with children taking more responsibility for their own learning.

Autumn Term topic in Year Five:

The Victorians (History)

Spring Term topics in Year Five:

First half term - Africa

Second half term - Space


All junior classes have now adopted a new style of homework following a successful trial during the summer term (Please see separate letter for more details). The new homework will be sent home on Friday and the children will have a range of homework tasks to choose from. We expect a minimum of 6 to be completed over the half term. This may be done on a weekly basis as they did previously or if you have a busy weekend and are short of time they can double up the following week. Due to the varied nature of the homework tasks children will no longer have a homework book. Homework is to be brought to school in their popper wallet.
