Space/The Ancient Mayans
For the first half of this term, we will be learning all about space. We'll be learning all about the planets in our solar system, and the movement of the Earth and the Moon in relation to the solar system. In D&T and computing, we will be designing our very own space rovers, which will need to be controlled through an algorithm on a computer program. Our artwork will be inspired by abstract space artist Peter Thorpe, and we'll being using paints to try to create effects similar to those in his paintings. Our English writing will be based around travel tales in space.
For the second half of the term, we will be learning about the Ancient Maya. We will learn about their daily life, and explore all of their amazing achievements, including their development of calendar systems and hieroglyphic writing. More on this after half-term!
