About 5th Grade

Fifth grade at Calvary Murrieta is an exciting grade, allowing students to begin to stretch themselves and discover new abilities. Our Bible curriculum focuses on living a godly life by exploring the Scriptures and learning God’s Word with many opportunities to reflect and discuss how to apply Biblical truth in the students’ lives. The English program is multi-faceted with the focus in writing various types of essays and culminating with each student writing a report about one of our fifty states. Other areas that support our English curriculum include grammar and spelling. The focus of math is number value and number sense, which focuses on operations with decimals and fractions. Our history curriculum is an overview of American history. Students also learn the fifty states and capitals of the United States. In science the students learn about various cycles that God has created in our world. They also study physical science and earth’s processes. We also take some amazing field trips in fifth grade to help learning come alive!
