River of Knowledge
Our humanities work this half term continues to look at the Mayans. We will be looking at the Mayan calendar and the Mayan number system. We will find out what the Mayan's ate and try some Mayan style cookery. Our half term homework will be used to help us construct a scale model of a Mayan city. Finally the children will undertake a self-directed project on South America comparing it to Britain and focusing on some of the similarities and differences.
