In Year 4/5, as part of our topic launch, we created Mayan Masks inspired by the ancient Mayans. We examined the masks and learnt that the masks were used for a number of reasons. Firstly, they were used to intimidate their enemies and on their masks there were designs of snakes and other dangerous animals. We used our designing skills to create respresentations of the snake on our masks. 
The masks were also used to celebrate ceremonies and festivals, we gathered ideas of what colours would be the most eye-catching and dynamic. 

The Mayans worshipped a God called Kukulan, who was known as the 'feathered serpant'. He was the God of chocolate and knowledge.

Have a look below at our fantastic designs. 

Over the course of this term, some of the children in our class have been learning to play a number of instruments with Miss Moulds. Today, they performed some of the pieces they have been learning. See the videos below for a few highlights.

In parliament week, we were been debating about whether or not we like school uniform and if we should be able to wear our normal clothes to school. We also had the fantastic opportunity have a video call from the Speaker at the House of Commons. He was able to answer some of our questions we had about his role as the speaker, we found out a lot of useful information!

Year 4/5 have been learning a lot about angles and how to measure them accurately. As it was orchard week, the children grouped up to identify what angles they could find outside. With their protractors, they were able to accurately measure them and describe the angle by using correct mathematical vocabulary. 

 

The children had a fantastic time performing their class assembly to the whole school. The theme was the Stone Age and using our acting, dance and literacy skills we sent everyone back 500,000 years to when cave paintings, mammoth skin and flint axes were created and used. 

In Year 4/5, we were fortunate enough to step back in time to the Stone Age for the day. We were visited by Tempus Fugit's Suzie and Richard, who came to deliver many exciting activities making the Stone Age come alive. 

 

 

On the 26th September, it was the European Day of Languages. In class, we have been learning how to introduce ourselves in Spanish. 

We were lucky enough to have a dance workshop in the hall that focused on the Spanish Dance of Flamenco. During the session, the children focused their attention on hand movements, posture and eye contact. Take a look at some of the photos from the workshop below. 

On Tuesday 19th September, we had a special visit from a Maasai Warrior tribe. We had an exciting time learning about the culture and history of their tribe, as well as what life is like for the tribesmen and women today. 
The warriors performed a variety of songs and dances for us and some children were lucky enough to be able to join in. 
Take a look at some of the photos from the day.
