Our Learning Experience this term is called To the Mayans and back!
Please see our curriculum newsletter above for more information.
Through this learning experience, the children will be challenging themselves to produce non-fiction pieces of writing. Integrated into the non-fiction piece of work the children will learn about the geography and history of the Mayan civilization. Woven throughout the experience will be Design and Technology working alongside Art that will involve making artefacts similar to those of the Mayan era. The hook will be an exciting day learning how to make a Mayan Mask and to indulge in Mayan cuisine.
Our hook will immerse the children into Mexican/Mayan culture, we will be planning and designing clay tiles. They will also explore foods from this area of the World.
Take home task:
Research what Mayan headdresses or fans looked like. Then design or make one to help decorate our classroom.
Bring to school by: Monday 3rd February
In the final week, we will be opening the ‘Wincanton Travel Agency’ an interactive agency where the Year 4 tour guides will be able to tell others about excursions to the Mayan Era.
