Spring 1 - Could you be a Mayan?

This half term we are learning about the Ancient Mayan Civilisation. The Mayans lived in (what is now) Central America on the Yucatan Peninsula. They were an incredible race of people!

We will learn about their place in history, their location in the world and how the civilisation developed.


We will be writing newspaper reports, narratives and instructions all linked to Mayan life and culture. We will be practising our use of direct speech and relative clauses, as well as learning different ways to use parenthesis, modal verbs within sentences and reported speech.


This half term, we will learn how to use long multiplication to times 4 digit numbers by 2 digit numbers. We will also be securing our use of short division.


In science, we will be learning about the different forces that act upon objects. We will be conducting lots of experiments to investigate the effects of forces.
