Year 5 2019 - 2020

Mrs Babinska

Welcome to Year 5 

Autumn 1

Hola Mexico!

 Who were the Mayans? When and where did they live? What was the Mayan civilization like?

 We will develop a range of skills across the curriculum while investigating how the Maya lived, their culture and their legacy.The children will experience Mayan life in a carousel of activities, including games, fact finding using the IPADs, Mayan Maths and even human sacrifice! Throughout the topic, they will use their enquiry skills to unlock the many secrets. We will bring this ancient civilization to life with our Mayan themed day on the last day of half-term.
