Year 5's Diary

Year 5 is a really exciting year, full of lots of new learning and new experiences – whether its learning all about space, or travelling back in time to the Vikings. We will spend a lot of time this year looking at positive learning and teamwork skills which will be useful – not only this year, but as the children progress on their journey through school. Our team includes Mr Steel, Mr Walker, Mrs Harland and Mrs Boyce

Autumn 2

Ecclesfield Teachers - Thursday, October 25, 2018

What a first term we've had! We've learned all about the life cycles of plants and animals, we've learned about Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, read about the heroic Beowulf and the murderous King Eric Bloodaxe.  We've been to the Jorvik Viking Centre and experienced what it's like to live and fight like a Viking.  Let's hope the second Autumn term is full of as much fun and excitement!


Here's what's coming up...

Our class book this term will be The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznik.

In science we will be investigating properties and materials.

Welcome to Year 5!

Ecclesfield Teachers - Wednesday, August 01, 2018

Welcome to year 5! We hope you had a fantastic summer full of excitement and adventure!


Our first topic of the year is going to be the Anglo Saxons and Vikings and how England was unified into one whole kingdom. We will look at the Anglo Saxons' lifestyle, villages, forts and kings. Then the Vikings arrived and we will discover how they changed the face of England forever!

To help with this we will be reading Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo to help understand village life in Dark Age England.
