  This booklet is designed to summarise the syllabus content of subjects taught in Year V at The
  Winchester School. However, the content of the curriculum will be paced at the appropriate rate and
  therefore could be varied from term to term, or substituted, if appropriate, for a particular child or group.

  Year V is the second year in the Preparatory Section of The Winchester School and progresses to build on
  what has been covered in Year IV. As with Year IV, your child’s subjects will continue to be taught by
  subject specialists.

  Although as a school we pay heed to the National Curriculum, we look to enhance this and ensure that the
  children are performing at a higher level. Our aim is to provide a broad curriculum from which the
  children will successfully progress to the next step in their education.

  Year V therefore, continues the formal delivery of the curriculum, building on the skills and knowledge
  children have acquired in previous years and progressing towards the demands of the examinations in
  Year VI and Year VIII.

  Children are assessed and internally tested during the Winter and Summer terms and the results are
  reported to parents. The school follows the British National    Curriculum which can be found at

                                       Expectations in Year V
  Children are encouraged at all times at The Winchester School, to be diligent and hard working. The
  expectations from our staff are high and we try to instil, in the children, a sense of pride and achievement
  in everything they do. We put emphasis on the presentation of the children’s work and monitor their
  organisational skills. There is ample opportunity for their efforts and achievements to be recognised and
  celebrated through our star awards and certificates as well as our many concerts, performances and

  The children’s individual reading is monitored and nurtured; children are taught to appreciate a love of
  reading as an enjoyable and worthwhile experience while acknowledging the merits and benefits it
  affords as a cross curricular tool, accessing all areas of the curriculum. To assist parents and children we
  issue Reading Lists at the beginning of each year and offer support with the choice of literature. Children
  use a reading diary to help monitor their reading at home and at school.

  Homework is set daily, and in Year V will be two subjects of approximately thirty minutes duration. The
  purpose of homework is:
       • to encourage independent learning

       • to help children to become organised

       • to reinforce and extend the work covered in class

       • to facilitate creative work

  You will receive three written reports on your child’s progress during the year, and will have the
  opportunity to meet the teachers twice a year. Do not hesitate to contact your child’s form teacher should
  you have any thing further to discuss.

        and the
         number of children to use

       • to present results in a line graph and explain what these show and whether they support the
       • that when humans exercise, muscles move parts of the skeleton and this activity requires an
        increased blood supply, so the heart beat increases and the pulse rate is faster

       • that substances like tobacco, alcohol and other drugs can affect the way the body functions
        and these effects can be harmful
       • that medicines are also drugs and also affect the way the body functions but the effects are
