Welcome back everyone!
We have a really busy term coming up in the Summer with lots of exciting plans!
This term's topic is is 'Who were the Maya and where did they go?'
We will learn all about the society of the Maya and how archaeologists have helped us to understand more about how they lived. In the second half term we will have a Geography focus exploring how humans have affected the environment in which they live.
In English we will be using the novel 'Journey to The River Sea' by Eva Ibbotson to develop our writing skills. It's a really exciting adventure story set in the Amazon rainforest. Our class novel is 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell which we are now close to finishing! Will the children get out of the rainforest alive???
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.
