Our topic this half term is the Maya civilisation. This started with a introduction to the Maya by creating clay pots using pictures of Maya pottery.
In line with our topic year 5 have been looking at the poem Ozymandias, how this links to the Maya, with looking at the historical context and how it supports the meaning. They then created their own to perform in class, using intonation, tone and volume.
In Maths, year 5 are recapping place value using 6 digit numbers, and using a range of methods to support them, including number lines.
In PE year 5 have started a dance sequence linked to the Maya topic and will be adding their own section to this over the coming weeks.
