Welcome back to the final term of this academic year, we hope you had a fantastic half term and enjoyed the Jubilee celebrations.
Class 4 have been working hard already this week beginning our topic ‘Marvellous Mayans’. We are designing a Maya themed adventure park in maths and English, using our maths skills to budget for building and running a theme park full of thrilling rides and our English skills to deisgn and publish a brochure to encourage visitors to flock to our parks.
We are also investigating artist Frederick Catherwood, who drew detailed illustrations of Maya artefacts and ruins. We are using word to write a biography to show what we find out about him.
We have started to design our Mayan masks and researched why these were made and looked at different designs. We will begin to make our masks next week using acrylic paint, gems and feathers.
Examples of our artwork to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee are on display in The Guild Hall this weekend please take a look.
Have a great weekend.
