Year 5


Term 1


We have had a busy and brilliant first term in Class 5. In our topic work we have been learning all about the Maya culture of Central America, finding out about their beliefs, way of life, art and writing. We have designed our own Maya glyph blocks in art and done some Mayan inspired weaving. We have done some fantastic literacy work with work based on a great story called the The Tear Thief, a video called The Ridge and some research and writing about the Mayan city of Chichen Itza.


In PE, we have been working on the importance of communication through our new My Personal Best programme, applying our communication skills to improving our passing in Tag Rugby and our team work in Gymnastics.


We have learnt about reversible and irreversible changes to materials in science and done some great investigating.


Our last week of Term 1 was Multicultural week. Have a look at some of the things we have been up to this term in our 'Gallery' section below and check back soon for more updates.
