Our topic this Autumn term is...
We will be learning about what life was truly like during the Ancient Mayan and answering questions such as:
When and where did The Mayans live? How did the Mayans invent and use their calendars and number system?
What were the religious beliefs of the Mayans, how did practice these beliefs and who were the gods they believed in?
What type of food did the Mayans eat and what was its religious and cultural significance?
For information on what Year 5 will be doing in all subjects, please see the curriculum overview on our class page!
In RE this half term we will be exploring how and why Christians read the Bible? We will investigate how the Bible gives us guidance for daily living, both in times of trouble and times of joy. We will also explore the importance of sacred books in other world religions.
Our Christian value this half term is Friendship and we will be examining this theme in assemblies and in lessons.
