Autumn 1

Our topic for this half term is 'The Magnificent and Mysterious Mayans'. We are looking forward to finding out about this ancient civilisation. 

In R.E this week we have been discussing places around the school that we find friendly, thoughtful and peaceful. This is to start of our topic 'Places of Worship'.

We have started our topic by using a relay to gather information about the Mayans. We also thought about what we already know about them and what we would like to find out.
