Ancient Mayan Civilisation Topic Term 3: Year 5 have been learning about the Maya civilisation who lived  in Mesoamerica (now Mexico and Central America).
The Maya discovered a huge amount about astronomy. They developed a calendar system based on their observations of the sun and sky, and created art work based on the sun and the moon. Our Year Fives were inspired to create their own pictures! Here is a selection of their finished pieces.

     

 

Drum Workshop:  The Year 5 classes all had an opportunity to play a range of African Drums and percussions instruments during a workshop at the start of Term 2. The children enjoyed it and will continue to use the school African Drums during the remainder of the year.  

 

Thank you to Roger Sansom from the North Somerset Music Service who led the workshop.

 

Explorer Dome Visit: Year 5 classes were visited by Explorer Dome on 8th November. The children had an exciting opportunity to visit the Dome to learn more about Light which links to their Science Topic. Trained presenters, Matina and Josh, showed the children a range of experiments which demonstrated the colours in the light spectrum, how light is mixed to make white, also how shadows are formed and proved that light travels in straight lines.Year 5 really enjoyed the experience and will be writing recounts about their time inside the Dome next week.
