River of Knowledge
Our humanities work this half term is based around the Mayans and we will use maps to plot where the Mayan settlements were built. We will also look at the Mayan timeline and compare this to what was happening in Britain in the same period. We will look into the different types of Mayan masks and why these were worn, we will then design our own mask and make these as part of our 3d art project. Work will also be conducted into Mayan rituals and beliefs and we will create a Who's Who of Mayan Gods. Finally we will undertake work on the features of Mayan cities.
Our work on Mayans will continue into the second half of term when we will also be working on a project about South America.
