Year 6

Mysterious Mayans

This term, year 6 will be learning about the ancient Maya civilisation. We will be exploring where they came from and looking at the physical geography of the area. We will also be learning about various aspects of their everyday lives, such as their number system, their clothing and their way of life. We will explore the Ancient Maya creation story and compare it to those that we already know.


The children will have the opportunity to carry out their own research projects into this theme, developing their independent learning skills.


We will also be linking our art and design lessons to this theme and will produce some of our own sculptures and murals.


Throughout the term, we will be linking lots of maths and literacy skills into our themes, to really enhance our learning.
