English CBSE Syllabus Class 5

Primary Level (Class - V)


The demand for English at the initial stage of schooling is evident in the mushrooming of private ‘English medium’ schools and in the early introduction of English as a subject across the states/UTs of the country. Though the problems of feasibility and preparedness are still to be solved satisfactorily, there is a general expectation that the educational system must respond to people’s aspiration and need for English. Within the eight years of education guaranteed to every child, it should be possible in the span of 5 years to ensure basic English language proficiency including basis literacy skills of reading and writing.


The general objectives at this level are:

• to provide print-rich environment to relate oracy with literacy.

• to build on learners’ readiness for reading and writing.

• to promote learners’ conceptualisation of printed texts in terms of headings, paragraphs and horizontal lines.

• to enrich learners’ vocabulary mainly through telling, retelling and reading aloud of stories/folktales in English.

• to use appropriate spoken and written language in meaningful contexts/situations.

• to give them an opportunity to listen to sounds/sound techniques and appreciate the rhythm and music of rhymes/sounds.

• to enable them to relate words (mainly in poems) with appropriate actions and thereby provide understanding of the language.

• to familiarize learners with the basic process of writing.

• At the end of this stage learners will be able to do the following:

• narrate his/her experiences and incidents

• exchange his/her ideas with the peers

• carry out a brief conversation involving seeking/giving information

• enjoy reading a story, poem, a short write-up, a notice, poster etc

• take dictation of simple sentences and to practise copy writing from the blackboard and textbook and to use common punctuation marks

• write a short description of a person, thing or place – prepare a notice, or write a message for someone

• write a short composition based on pictures

• take part in group activity, role play and dramatization

Language Items

At the primary level, knowledge of grammar is to be seen mainly as a process of discovering uses and functions of items through exposure to spoken and written inputs. However, for material writers, teachers and evaluators, the following items may provide a framework of reference.
