Welcome to Year 5!
This term, our topic is “Ancient Egypt.” We will be focusing on life in Ancient Egypt as well as looking at the geography of the area.
Year 5's new book study is Red Pyramid. We will be using it as part of our guided reading sessions and linking it to writing and speaking and listening skills as much as possible.
This term we have been taking part in Time to Talk with a focus on current affairs. The presentations have been fantastic with a lot of time and effort going in to them to get important messages and information across. Some of the topics have included: recycling of plastics, Winter Olympics, extreme weather conditions and space missions.

Trip to St Edmundsbury Cathedral
As part of our topic, we visited the cathedral in Bury St Edmunds. We learned lots about St Edmund, the features of the inside of the cathedral and all about the Abbey ruins. Now, we will use this learning to write information guides about the cathedral in English and learn more about the legend of St Edmund in history.
