This term our topic is In Mexico, which will provide the opportunity for the children to explore
the life of the Mayan civilisation, including their beliefs, daily life and trade.
In addition, children will also be able to discover the origins of volcano and in particular El Chichón
as one theory is that a huge volcanic ash cloud wiped out the Mayan civilisation.
The children will also compare Mexico now and then.
The children will do a range of activities including:
Cooking – Following a recipe, measuring ingredients and cooking to make tortillas and old cocoa hot
Art – Mask making for day of the dead celebration and ancient Mayan masks.

Reading Books, Spellings and Homework
Your child will be given:
- a reading book
- #30things homework challenge
- Key 3 activities
We expect all children to read for 10 minutes - 3 times a week. Books will be changed, ready to be sent out every Friday.
Each Friday, your child can choose an activity to do from the #30things grid. We look forward to seeing the pictures of the children completing their challenges! These need to be handed back into school the following Tuesday.
Spellings will now be taught 4 times a week in class. This means that no spelling homework will be given out.
These activities are very important in helping your child improve at school and we hope you will support us by helping your child at home.
