Welcome to Year 5!

Take a look below to see what we have been learning...

Our day at Ipswich Museum 

This half term we took a trip to the Ipswich Museum to discover and learn about the journeys into Ancient Egypt. 

We were able to discover and investigate real Egyptian artefacts that have been found in tombs. We created a living timeline - which involved some of us wearing silly hats! We were able to get creative and use our art skills to make clay shabits for the Pharaoh. An exciting part of the day was stepping into the mummy's tomb to explore the importance of the afterlife. Along with exploring the Natural History gallery and discovering the animals that inspired the gods of Ancient Egypt. We were amazed by all of the different animals and the size of them, getting up close! 

Forest School 

This term we have had the exciting opportunity to be the first year group to take part in Forest School. 
Each week we are able to experience the outdoors, venturing out and immersing ourselves in nature. 

Ancient Egyptians 

This term our topic is the Ancient Egyptians. 

In our first week we took part in an Egyptian escape room! This was great fun! We had to work in groups to collect clues, solves puzzles and crack codes. 

In DT we have been cooking a range of Egyptian foods. We got stuck in with preparing, cooking, trying and uses our senses to evaluate the variety of dishes. 


We are having great fun in PE, experiencing something exciting and new! Cheer dance is a dynamic combination of cheerleading moves and stylish stunts. We have learnt a variety of high energy routines performed to fun music. Take a look at how much fun we have been having!
