Pupils visit St Edmundsbury cathedral to help with English




Year 5 and 6 pupils from a Bury St Edmunds primary school left the classroom on Tuesday and took a trip to St Edmundsbury Cathedral.

The pupils, from St Edmundsbury Primary School, in Grove Road, visited the cathedral to help study the book they are reading this term, Floodland, by Marcus Sedgewick.

The book is set in the not-so-distant future where sea-levels have risen and Norwich has become an island – a cathedral on the island is one of the main settings.

The children explored different spaces in the cathedral and sketched the stained glass windows. This was all to help with creative writing in English and so the children could put themselves in the shoes of the main character of the book.
