This term, Year 5/6 have been learning about Mexico and have recently started learning about the Heart.
We have focused on the Mexican Festival Day of the Dead and our work has linked to other aspects of Mexican life – both present and past. Classes have designed and made their own Day of the Dead masks, researched life in Mexico and gained an understanding of the Ancient Maya tribe.
Following on from Mexico, children are just beginning to learn how the heart works and why it is so important. Some classes have started work on clay models and 3D models of the heart.
