Our topic for the Spring Term is based on the Maya Civilisation.
Mathematics sessions will develop and consolidate everyone's knowledge of Number, Ratio and Proportion, Algebra, Measurement, Geometry and Statistics.
In English we will be writing persusively, creating Maya adventure stories, writing diary entries, analytical essays, instructions and arguments. The writing will be based upon the Ancient Maya Civilisation. The children will be thoroughly immersed in this exciting, colourful topic .
We will enjoy reading an adventure story together in our Guiding Reading sessions and we will also share books based on the era of our topic.
The children will be learning about evoloution and inheritance. It is a challenging and hugely interesting topic and the children will even get the chance to make chocolate fossils!
In the second half of the term, the children will consolidate their understanding of sound.
In History we shall be understanding the importance and significance of the Maya Civilisation in our world today. Children will recognise how elements of their daily lives have been shaped by history.
In Geography we shall identify be identifying where the descendents of the Mayan live today. Our focus will be on Mexico and Central America. We will be exploring trade routes, holiday destinations and the impact of exploration in bringing the Mayan cultures into Europe.
