Peru class have been doing some artwork today using pictures of rainforest animals. They used one half of a picture and then drew the other half as accurately as possible! They are very proud of their efforts and finished up with some great pictures. They were very creative with their colouring and backgrounds too!

Peru have enjoyed reading 'Street Child' this half term. Here they are doing some drama. They did some freeze frames to show what happened when the horrible landlord Mr Spink comes into their room and shouts at their mother.






 Welcome to Peru Class!

Hi everyone! I’m Mrs Melling and I’m very excited to be working in year 5 this year! It is so good getting back to school and doing what I enjoy most. My life has been very quiet without you all to talk to! I’m also delighted to be working with a brilliant team of staff!


I’m amazed at how well my new class have adjusted to being back after such a long time in lockdown. They have worked their socks off so far so I know they’ll soon catch up.


This term we will be learning all about South America (in particular Peru of course)! We already know lots about the Amazon rainforest and deforestation. Just ask the children!

We’ll also be learning all about the Industrial Revolution in history. Our English text is ‘Street Child’ by Berlie Doherty so we will hear all about what life was like for children in the cities during this time.


Our class novel is ‘The Explorer’ by Katherine Rundell and that is also set in the Amazon rainforest. We have already learned lots of facts about the area from the book.

Looking forward to an exciting year!
