This half term we will be learning all about the Maya. We will travel back in time to AD 200 to find out about the Classic Maya period, look at which part of the world the Maya lived in and find out about their everyday lives.
Through our whole class Guided Reading we will be studying the book Room 13 by Robert Swindells
The children spread themselves out in the hall and designed and created their own tree diagrams for sorting animals.
Today, artist Peter Hall visited class to begin our geometric shape art project. The children were very careful as they used rulers to draw parallel lines and colour in using contrasting colours. Over the next few weeks, we will add to our designs ready for Peter's second visit.
In science, we are currently investigating the best conditions for microorganisms to grow. We have placed slices of bread around the classroom and will check up on them in a week!
Today, we have baked bread. We used the microorganism yeast to help our bread rise.
