Weekly Newsletter W/C 9th September
Another fantastic week in Maugrims class. This week we have learnt about the counting system the Maya people used and taken part in some food tasting, trying tortillas and dips and other Maya food. We have used the Mayan knowledge of stars and planets to look at what we know about Space. We have researched about the Planets and even came up with our own way of remembering the order. As part of our science work we have also looked at the movement of the Earth and its rotation; we even conducted an experiment to show how the Earth moved. In PE, Premier sports started to teach us a new sport, Tchukeball, which is very exciting and energetic! A great week for Fab 5, we got 100% in our first week and we learnt about our new responsibilities as year 6 children. We are all really excited about next week our residential trip to PGL next week. keep up the hard work Maugrims.

What a great start the year 6s have made in Maugrims class! Much like the role models they are, they have settled down to their work and been responsible and respectful to everyone in school. In lessons we have continued with our Mayans topic that we started before the Summer holidays. Specifically this week, we have used our map work skills to locate Countries and Continents on a World map and then relate this to where the Mayans lived. We have also looked at Mayan Gods and the different reasons they had them. In our topic books we have created a factfile about the Gods and started to think creating our own Mayan God. On Friday, we had a creative day and used our D and T skills to create a mask in the style of a Mayan Festival mask.
It's been a great first week back, keep up the good work at home and remember to read regularly to achieve our Fab 5s award.
