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!
