To tie in with our Mayan topic the children enjoyed an afternoon with the One Day Creative group. They ran a series of workshops, which combined historical facts with discussion and drama as they learned about the various gods and hierarchies of Mayan civilisation.
Our Y5 Work
On one very hot Tuesday, the children competed against each City State in an Ancient Greek-style Olympic afternoon with Year 6!
The children wrote scriptures, chanting their City State values. The afternoon soon became very competitive but eventually the City State of Sparta won! The sporting activities which took place were: 'Shield Racing', boxing, javelin, discus and running.
The children behaved extremely well and learned lots about their new topic.
