History - Ancient Maya


We will begin our PSHE lessons by understanding ourselves by discussing our feelings and exploring risk taking. We will then move on to our topic, drugs, alcohol and tobacco education. We will learn about the risks associated with smoking drugs including e-cigarettes, tobacco and cannabis. We will then learn about the different influences on drug use, learn strategies to resist pressure and explore the different levels of risk involved in drug use. After this, we will move onto road safety; we will learn different techniques and plan safe routes. Finally, we will move onto online safety; social networking, privacy and self esteem. Alongside this, we will continue to take part in Theratime sessions weekly. 


To start with, we will concentrate on fact files linked to St George’s Day. We will then complete some poetry based around fireworks linked to our shared text, The Firework Maker’s daughter by Phillip Pullman. After that, we will write a character description and an advertisement all based on our shared text. Next, we will carry out some learning around the sentence types. Lastly, we will write a non-chronological report linked to our history topic, Ancient Maya. 


At the beginning of the half term in maths we will be focusing on place value including numbers to 1 million and negative numbers. After this, we will use our knowledge to add and subtract mentally and answer multi-step problems.  


In science this half term we will be learning about animals including humans. We will explore changes as humans age, puberty, life expectancy and fertilisation. 


During history this half term, we will be focusing on Ancient Maya. We will begin by learning who the Ancient Maya were, then we will explore what different aspects of life were like including art and food.  


This half term we will be focusing on all four of the religions taught so far; Islam, Sikhism, Christianity and Judaism. We will be answering the key question; why are some journeys and places special? We will begin by exploring our own places of significance. Then we will look at the difference between a pilgrimage and a tourist. After this, we will explore pilgrimages in the different religions. 

Alongside all of this brilliant learning we will also be developing our skills through art, DT, PE, food technology, music and computing. For more information please see the long-term plan (LTP) and twitter for daily updates.
