Our topic for this term is… Hola Mexico
Key Stage 2 are getting ready to explore this unique country, from its towering temples and stunning geography to its pulsing rhythms and fun packed festivals.
We will be discovering the mysterious world of the ancient Maya civilisation, researching a range of festivals before creating our own Mexican themed one! The term will end on a high when we host this festival with will include our own orginial music score and songs. We will also chorography a dance, build models of temples and create our own rituals and jewellery. Let’s hope the festival will make the Gods happy and not angry!
After taking part in a range of activities to introduce us to the topic we use a ‘Jigsaw’ to plan the activities we would like to do. These activities must cover all areas of the new curriculum, Maths and Numeracy, Language and Literacy, Science and Technology, Humanities, Health and Wellbeing and Expressive Arts.
