Peru

Welcome to Peru Class!

 

Hi everyone! I’m Mrs Melling and the teacher of Peru class.  

This term in Mini Topic we will be learning all about South America (in particular Peru of course)! We will explore the human and physical features of the landscape, discover amazing hidden treasures and delve into the Amazon rainforest. Over the year we will also explore the fascinating sights and celebrations of Mexico and Brazil. 

 

I'm looking forward to an exciting year!

Spring Term 

 

Happy New Year !

I hope you’ve had a well-earned break over Christmas and are all rested and ready to go for a new term.

 

This term we are moving on to a new topic of Invaders and Settlers.

You will explore the fierce Anglo Saxon warriors and the vicious Vikings in spring term.

You will investigate who the Saxons and Vikings were and where they came from, you will identify kingdoms and settlements within the UK and Europe. We will explore war and weaponry of this time and read  the legend of Beowulf.

 

 

'Hear and listen well, and I will tell you a tale that has been told for a thousand years and more. It may be an old story, yet it troubles and terrifies us now as much as it did, for we still fear the evil that stalks out there in the darkness and beyond.'

Michael Morpurgo

 

We will be exploring the use of language to excite the reader and draw us into the story.

Can you make a prediction using the blurb and front cover? What will the story be about? How will it be exciting and engaging? Do you think you will enjoy it, if so why? 

World Book Day - Wednesday 3rd March. We all had a brilliant time dressing up as words! The day started with our first whole school assembly in ages. Mrs Roberts set us some fabulous activities to do and we had a ball!

Wellbeing Week March 2022 - We had a great week this week, the focus was on relaxing and finding time to talk to each other. Our favourite afternoon was playing outside on the field together and going in the forest garden for the first time in 3 years! We also did lots of singing!

Good to Be Green Treat April 2022 - Those of us who earned their GTBG treat this half term decided another session outside was the best option! We had a lovely time playing on the field together and eating snacks!

Autumn Term

 

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. 

 

The children have all studied 'Street Child' and thoroughly enjoyed it in English lessons, they learnt about the main character a boy called Jim Jarvis and his extraordinary life. They explored the ups and downs that children of the time went through and saw into how hard life could have been. Peru were able to make comparisons to modern Britain and Britain in the Victorian period. They also found out about a famous man called Barnardo.

 

 

 

So far this term, the children have had lots of learning experiences to engage them and enhance their learning. They have explore the history and introduction of the Industrial Revolution and how it affected Britain in Topic lessons.

Peru has also made a Victorian sugar mice and designed its own packaging. 

 

  

 

 The children have visited the Head of Steam Museum to find out about the local history and how George Stephenson impacted the railways during this time along with an amazing trip to Beamish which was enjoyed by all.
