Year 5

The School Curriculum 

At Desmond Anderson Primary Academy, for core subjects (maths, reading and writing), we follow the National Curriculum for each year group, the details of which can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-primary-curriculum. In the Special Support Centre, the children access the most appropriate core curriculum for their developmental stage. 

For information on all other (Foundation) subjects, please follow the link for our most up to date Medium Term Plan for your child’s year. This plan is not fixed, but constantly changes and evolves to reflect the needs of our children each academic year. For example, this year’s Medium Term Plans have additional objectives in purple, which are ones that children need to catch up on from last year. 

Over and above the regular adaptations, we are currently undertaking a whole-school curriculum review, which will be completed in stages throughout the year and uploaded to the website in stages.
