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 Ancient Greece. 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 Miss Smith, Miss Naylor and Miss Wilson.

Plans for Summer 1

Ecclesfield Teachers - Wednesday, March 28, 2018

Hello everyone!

What an amazing half term we’ve had! We learnt all about Sutton Hoo, wrote a balanced argument about the Easter Story and went on a school visit to Hesley Wood! It’s been busy.

After the Easter holidays, we’re starting a new topic ‘Where’s our place in Space?’ This is an exciting topic for Y5 and we cannot wait to get started with it. We will also launch our new Science topic ‘All Living Things and their Habitats’.

Our new class book will be Grimm Tales and we’re really looking forward to reading some gruesome stories from it! This will link to our writing too.

We will start by rounding whole and decimal numbers in Maths. If you’d like to get a head start with this, go to Mathletics and practise!

We will continue to do the daily mile so please send a spare pair of trainers each day.

Thank you, and have a lovely Easter break.

Snow activities

Ecclesfield Teachers - Thursday, March 01, 2018
As school is closed today, it would be great if the children could complete the following tasks:


This week, we started to focus on angles. Please draw 3 acute angles and 3 obtuse angles and then estimate they're sizes.


At the beginning of the week, we watched a clip called Broken. Please list the key events of the parts of the clip we have watched so far to refresh your memory ready for writing when we return to school!


Tomorrow is World Book Day at Ecclesfield! Please read the first 2 or 3 pages of your favourite book and out loud to an adult with intonation and then summarise what has happened.

Have a great day year 5!

Miss Smith and Miss Naylor
