In this Term 1 we are looking at Perplexing Pyramids and our guided reading book is 'The Time Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess'.  Our learning for this term is here and our Home Learning Guide for Term 1 is here!



Wonderful examples of Home Learning.

Canopic jars were used by the ancient Egyptians during the mummification process. During the mummification process the organs of the human body were removed and preserved separately in canopic jars. Here are some of our own.

Term 3 

In term 3 our topic is ‘To infinity and beyond’ and our core reading text is ‘George’s secret key to the universe'. We will be finding out lots about the planets in our Solar System and writing adventure stories linked to our exciting class story.

5E had great fun creating pieces of music to reflect different planets in our solar system. We also enjoyed learning about the different phases of the moon and creating them with Oreos!


 Take a look out our super chalk Solar System artwork.
