Hello and welcome to the year 5/6 class page! It's fantastic to be back in school and have all the children back in class! The class page will be regularly updated to let you know what we have been doing in class! There will also be useful links for children that can support their learning.
Half term homework project: Building a Favela!
You have just arrived in Rocinha (Rio de Janeiro) from the countryside hoping to start a better life. With no money or job you have nowhere to live, so you have to find shelter in the favelas. You find a plot of land and over the coming weeks begin to build your home out of anything you can! Use the powerpoint below to see examples of designs!

Our new class book is 'Kick' by Mitch Johnson.... 'Budi's plan is simple. He's going to be a star. Budi's going to play for the greatest team on earth, instead of sweating over each stitch he sews, each football boot he makes. But one unlucky kick brings Budi's world crashing down. Now he owes the Dragon, the most dangerous man in Jakarta. Soon it isn't only Budi's dreams at stake, but his life.'
