In Year 6, the children have really enjoyed learning about the Mayan civilisation. They have done some fantastic story writing using direct speech and relative clauses. They have also learned about how the Mayans were the first civilianisation to use chocolate in an interesting folk tale called ‘The Chocolate Tree’.
In the enquiry lessons, the children have been able to articulate their ideas on the Mayan civilisation and how this compared to the Vikings. We have also had a strong RHSE focus this half term where the children have learned about differences and equality, home safety and how to cyberbullying. This included doing a ‘Big Brother’ chair style video where the children told us about staying safe online.
