Hornbeam Class - Term 3 - Discovering Guatemala

They have learnt about the Maya civilisation, practised using their number system and were fascinated to learn that they used hieroglyphics when writing. During our topic the children explored the Maya Creation story, as part of this they created puppets to perform the creation story. Our topic finished with a Skype debate, this was extremely exciting and all the children participated well. All children have made good progress this term in maths; the term began with multiplication and division and then moved onto learning how to tell the time. The children have really enjoyed their English topics this term, particularly when writing their own myth about how the peacock got its colourful feathers!
