Welcome to Sun Class!


The adults that work in this class are Miss Burr and Mrs Whittaker.



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.


How to support at home:

  • Research the life of the Maya with your child to find out interesting facts about them to share at school.
  • Try to read every day with your child.
  • Learn weekly spellings
  • Learn times tables facts up to x12 so the children can recall them without hesitation! 


PE and Games

This will take place every Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure kit is kept in school throughout the week.
