Welcome to Year 5
Class Teacher: Mr Daniel Rees
This half term we will be exploring the ancient mayan world of central America. We we will be immersing ourselves in how the Maia lived; learning about their history, how they used writing and maths, how they built their cities and what they believed in. There will be many opportunities to show our learning through art and design and technology activities and we will show off our learning with a museum open afternoon near the end of the half term.
Children will also have the chance to deepen their understanding when we invite Clive Pig in for an interactive mayan afternoon.
This topic will give us several writing opportunities such as non-chronological reports, explorer diaries, myth writing and explanation texts.
