Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed learning about ‘The Mayans’ last half term. They experienced a full range of cross curricular activities linked to finding about this ancient civilisation. Some highlights from the term included: making Mayan clay pots and painting them, making and enjoying Mayan food, learning how to use the green screen in computing, finding out about the history of chocolate and taking part in a Mayan orienteering course in the forest school. We also managed to write a traditional Mayan Folklore Tale and a non chronological report about an aspect of Mayan life. What a busy few weeks!
