Concrete Porch Floor

I need to pour a concrete porch floor (at the top of the stairs). I was wondering what type of cement is needed for the floor (I usually purchase materials from home depot). Also, what type of mesh or rebar do I need and how thick does the floor need to be? Areas is approxmiated 5' x 5'.

Is there a website that shows a particular type of rebar pattern to follow?
