I would like to offer a huge welcome back to school after such a long time away! I am sure you are all ready and eager to start a new school year and learn lots of new and exciting things. 




Our River of Knowledge topic for the first half of the autumn term is called ‘Structures and Tangled Leaves’ and is focused on the ancient Maya civilisation.  We will use timelines and atlases to locate when and where the Mayan’s settled, as well as looking at some geographical features of Central and South America.  We will consider Mayan architecture and how Mayan cities were constructed, gods and beliefs, the Mayan diet (we will be doing some Mayan inspired cooking in DT), past times, mythology, number systems, astrology, the Mayan calendar and art.
