Welcome to Year 4

We are very excited to get our new topic 'The Mighty Mayans' underway.

The children have already had a very exciting start to our new term where they have created their own Mayan God, learnt about the rules and played a game of Pok-a-Tok, looked closely at some of the most important events of Maya history and have written persuassive letters to Chac, the god of rain to bring an end to the terrible dought! Only time will tell as to whether these letters have worked their magic....

The children have learnt why the Mayan people found big noses so attractive, why they strapped boards to babies' heads and that they spoke over 30 different languages!  We wonder if any of our children will learn one or two of the words during the topic.
 

Please scroll down to view our latest termly newsletter which will give you an insight into what we will be covering this term across the curriculum. You will be able to find a copy of all of our newsletters from this academic year there too.

 

You will also find photographs taken during our topic from last term 'Jumanji', where the children made ther own games in the blog section. 

 

We look forward to welcoming you to see the work the children have produced over the two topics in the final week of the term.
