Autumn 1 Project:
The Mayans – What did the Mayans believe and when did they live?
We found out all about the ancient civilisation, the Mayans. Click below to find out what we have learnt in each subject.
In English so far, we started looking at The Day the Crayons Quit. We had fun putting ourselves in the shoes of the characters to recreate just how the crayons would feel and talk in interviews.
We then planned, researched and wrote non-chronological reports about the Mayans.
During Black History Month, we also looked at inspirational figures and celebrated their bravery by writing poems.
We started off the year by consolidating and stretching our calculation and place value skills.
We created our own timelines sequencing main events in the Mayan period. Scale was important to us and we ensured that 10cm = 100 years on our timeline. Artefacts told us a great deal about life in Ancient Maya although some were a little tricky to infer what they were used for! Check out our amazing writing in the role of explorer, John Lloyd Stephens who discovered breath-taking Mayan statues. We explored the traditional Mayan story of the Hero Twins and used Stop Motion to recreate animations.
Look at our beautiful Mayan-inspired patterns. These were used to create styrofoam tiles using carving techniques to create a print.
We were investigating our own health and fitness. We did an investigation into how exercise affects our pulse and heart rate, then we looked at balanced diets and how those healthy nutrients are moved around the body.
We started computing this year looking at how to use the internet safely before moving on to researching, designing, programming and debugging our own informative animations using Scratch.
In PE, we have been working on our fitness agility as well as our tag rugby skills. Watch out for us in the Rugby World Cup 2027! Check out our Tag Rugby Skills.
Children took pray in a Zoom meeting with Dr. Mahshid Turner from the Durham University Islamic Society to find out how Muslims support the local community
