Topic sees Year 4 stepping back in time to visit the ancient civilisation of The Maya, in Mexico. The children learn all about their art, ceremonies and how The Maya wrote and recorded their daily lives. They will make a ceremonial or death mask, find out what their name looks like by writing in hieroglyphs and create some authentic Maya pottery. Once they have all this knowledge, they are visited by Mexicolor for a Mayan themed day.
In English the children are looking at diaries, stories from other cultures and writing factual news stories. Through this they will learn how to build fronted adverbials and complex sentences into their writing.
In Maths we are tackling tricky fractions. The children will see the progression of equivalent, simplifying, adding and subtracting fractions and turning improper fractions to mixed numbers.
PE throughout the term looks at gymnastics.
