This half term Class 3 are learning about Ancient Maya. We will be finding out who this Ancient Civilisation were, where they lived, when they lived and all about their daily life. We will compare them to other historical periods they know about and place key events on a time line.
The children will be making Mayan masks and studying and recreating artefacts using clay. They will also try some Mayan food and drink and plan their own versions of these.
In Maths we will be learning how to multiply and divide, carrying out calculations using money, and learning about statistics (using pictograms and bar charts).
In English, we are using the story ‘The Tin Forest’ to create some exciting descriptive writing.
‘Rocks’ is our science unit. We will be exploring the properties of rocks and carrying out investigations. We will also look at fossils and write an information text about Mary Anning, a famous Palaeontologist.
