2021-2022: SPRING: MYSTERIOUS MAYANS (A TOUR OF SOUTH AMERICA)

Please see the cross curricular topic map attached for more details of what we will learn throughout our next exciting topic. 

Our homework grid is also attached. We encourage you to work through the activities at your own pace. Please do share these activities with us on your Class Dojo portfolio. In addition, please read daily, practice your spellings and login to TT rockstars frequently to complete the challenges I set for you!

During this term, the children will be learning about the Mysterious Mayans! Did you know? The Mayans are referred to as being mysterious because nobody knows where they came from and nobody knows where they went, leaving their cities nearly deserted!

Children will begin the topic by exploring who the Mayans were and exploring which continent the Mayan civilisation was found on. Throughout this term, children will look at how the Mayan civilisation developed over time. To do this, children will look at different artefacts that had been left behind, allowing us to order event chronologically.  

Finally, after understanding and finding out about everyday life for the Mayan people and their religion and beliefs, children will find out about the decline of the Mayan civilisation and modern Maya today!
