Welcome to Mexico!
¡Bienvenidos a México!
A warm welcome to all visitors to Year 5.
My name is Mr Andrews and I am the class teacher for Mexico City. Are you ready to start a new year? Prepare to strap yourselves in because, in Year 5, we mean business! Don't panic; there's still plenty of fun to be had as well!
As part of our mini-topic this year, we will be exploring the fascinating sights and celebrations of Mexico particularly focusing on the Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) festival to celebrate the joy of life! We'll also be looking at the superb works of the Mexican portraitist, Frida Kahlo. We'll learn about her style and artistic influences before having a go at our own 'Kahlo-esque' self-portraits.
Our topic for the Autumn Term is The Industrial Revolution. You will see just how this Victorian age of invention completely turned the world on its head and shaped it into the one we see today!
I can't wait to get started!
Are you ready for your next adventure?
¡Vamos! Let's go!
This term we will be learning all about The Industrial Revolution. This will not only be taught in Topic, but also in our Literacy as we read together 'Street Child' By Birlie Doherty.
