A warm welcome to all visitors to Year 5.
My name is Mrs Horne and I am the class teacher for Rio De Janeiro.
Are we ready for the new "normal"?
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 Brazil and the carnival!
We will also be dipping into other areas of Latin America such as Mexico and Peru to gain insight to why the other Year 5 classes are named Peru and Mexico. We'll delve into the darkest depths of the Amazon Rainforest and discover the day of the dead.
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!
