Welcome to Year 6!
Our learning journey topic is ‘Who were the marvellous Mayans?’ We will begin our journey with a Mayan Workshop as our super start where children will learn about the Mayan civilisations and explore artefacts. We will learn the rules of the traditional Mayan game of Pok-a-Tok. Towards the end of our journey we will create our very own Mayan calendars using applique to sew symbols onto fabric.
Our Mayan workshop Super Start will take place on Tuesday 12th September.
Our Marvellous Middle will be during our PE lesson and will be a tournament of the Mayan game, Pok-a-Tok.
Our Fabulous Finish will be a Parent Workshop on Monday 4th December 2017, where we will be cross stitching our own Mayan glyphs and designs.
