We researched, designed and created our own ancient Maya inspired replicas. There are buildings, clothing, weapons, pottery, instruments, masks and jewellery. We are really proud of our final products.
Your homework this week is to:
- Have a go on BBC Defenders of Mathematica. Please choose topics that you need to work on.
- Log into the blog and comment on learning from the last week. There are questions for you to answer in the design technology post.
- Comment on this blog post when you have completed everything!
E-mail me if you need any help and I will reply when I can.

We loved meeting Janet the astronaut who landed in Goodleigh! We were so lucky that she came in to our class to tell us what it is like on the International Space Station whilst she waited for her battery to charge. We have written her some letters and can’t wait to send them to her.
We have been learning about Hinduism and the festival of Diwali this week. We enjoyed learning the story of Rama and Sita, Bollywood dance online with the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter and created our own dances to tell the story. In mathematics we learned about symmetry and rotational symmetry and used this to create our own rangoli patterns.
We are now busy working in partners to write our own versions of the story of Diwali and look forward to sharing them.
We had great fun joining Joe Wicks for the last twenty minutes of his 24 hours of exercise and celebrating Children In Need!
We painted and named our wooden fungi. We then used PicCollage to label them using the scientific names- they really are stunning!
Do you know the parts of a mushroom?
We are really pleased with our finished Christmas cards.
We have had a great start to our basketball sessions with Rob. Read the comments to find out what we have learned so far.
We love reading and discussing our books with each other.
What are you reading ? Why did you choose it? Which genre is it? Have you read any other books by the same author?
