Year 5 English

CrunchGrade Year 5 English Tutoring Service offers Year 5 students unlimited opportunities for indulging in writing adventures and experimentation in the last stage of their primary school. At this stage, our online tutoring offers a quick brushing up of skills children have learnt till now and lead them to enjoy writing as a way to express their creativity and imagination.

Our online English tutors guide students to apply different skills and literary devices (such as sensory imagery and deliberate word choice) to create original writing works. They also help them develop and nurture skill sets that will help them transition into High School smoothly.

Our Year 5 English tutoring curriculum is designed to expose students to High School English topics and features while revisiting and consolidating concepts learnt in previous years. This is achieved through close interaction with the online English tutor and regular feedback on the student's progress.

Term-Wise Year 5 English Australia Curriculum We Cover

CrunchGrade follows the prescribed English syllabus for Year 5 students in Australia. The term-wise syllabus we cover is as follows:

  • Term 1 Year 5 English syllabus focuses on literary texts, including films and digital texts. Here, students focus on ethical dilemmas characters face in these texts and how they impact their interpersonal relationships.

At CrunchGrade, we focus on narrative writing as a part of NAPLAN preparation in Term 1. Students learn to show off their creativity in the form of an engaging story with a clear beginning, middle and end. Our online English tutors work with students on planning and drafting their narratives so that they can score full marks in this section.

  • Term 2 Year 5 English syllabus focuses on reading, viewing, listening to, interpreting and evaluating different types of informative texts (such as newspaper stories, media stories, digital copies, films and nonfiction texts). They learn to gleam technical and content information from these texts and create an informative report. They also do a peer review of other students' informative reports and provide feedback based on their interpretation and analysis.

Besides helping with this, at CrunchGrade, we also focus on character development in literary texts in Term 2.

  • Term 3 Year 5 English syllabus focuses on the beauty of language devices. Students learn to experiment with and enjoy the various features of the language, along with their effect on meaning. They focus on the use of imagery and sound devices, simile, metaphor and personification in poetry, odes, songs and anthems. They also employ their imagination to create a performance based on imaginative poetry in this term.

At CrunchGrade, we teach students to use various types of figurative language to make their writing more interesting and engaging for the reader.

  • Term 4 Year 5 English syllabus focuses on exploring non-stereotypical characters, flashbacks and time shifts students encounter in junior and early adolescent novels. Themes of ethical dilemmas and interpersonal relationships between two characters in a fantasy world or real-world settings continue to be the focus of this term.

At CrunchGrade, we also introduce students to creative writing basics that they are going to encounter in Year 6.

New Things Grade 5 Australian Students Will Learn in English

In Year 5, students study text structures that include tables of contents, indexes and glossaries. They also learn about different types of graphics used to convey information, complex sentences and technical vocabulary that might be unfamiliar to them.

They also start learning how the meanings and spellings of words change over time. They learn the difference between main and subordinate clauses and how they can add details to the description using noun and adjective groups. They delve into fantasy and science fiction and learn to appreciate the stylistic features and figurative language authors use in these genres.

All these concepts will be new for most students, which is why they require the help of an expert English tutor to guide them through these topics. At CrunchGrade, our online English tutors are well-versed in the Year 5 Australian curriculum and can guide your child to express their point of view as well as reflect on the viewpoints of others, in both spoken and written form.

Overcome Your Learning Challenges with Year 5 English Tutors

Compound sentences can be a real headache for Year 5 students. Skilful use of noun and adjective groups is another pain point. Crafting a performance based on an imaginative poem requires imagination and creativity, two things that may not come naturally to some students.

If your child is struggling with any of these topics, our online English tutors can help. With years of experience teaching the Year 5 Australian curriculum, they know exactly how to break down complex concepts into manageable chunks that your child can understand and apply in their writing.

What Our Grade 5 English Tutors Help You Achieve?

Year 5 English tutors at CrunchGrade nurture students in a way that they can explain and analyse literal and implied information from a variety of texts, use text structures effectively, and understand and use language features, vocabulary and images to interpret and create settings, characters and events for a range of purposes.

They also develop their ability to use and understand a range of grammatical features and patterns, including those that sequence time and events. They also refine their spelling, vocabulary, punctuation and grammar skills.

At CrunchGrade, we help students become confident and independent readers who can read texts for enjoyment as well as to develop their knowledge and understanding. We also encourage them to read a range of texts from different genres, cultures and time periods to expand their vocabulary, sentence structure, and knowledge about the world.

Important Topics in Year 5 English Syllabus

Year 5 students must learn to use information from various sources and use it to form an opinion on the topic. They must also be able to write in a range of genres for different purposes. Editing and proofreading their work for errors is another important skill they must learn.

Challenges in Tutoring English to Year 5 Students

At this stage, students often get discouraged when they are told to rewrite or edit their work. They take it as a criticism of their abilities, rather than seeing it as an opportunity to improve their writing.

Year 5 English tutors need to be patient and help students see the value in making changes to their work. Only then will they be able to overcome their challenges and produce well-written, error-free texts.
