Easter Holidays

We are aware that this will be a very different Easter holiday for many.
We have created a range of ideas and activities that you can get involved in.

Reading – READ, READ, READ! One of the most important life skills and links to so many areas of your learning. Read books at home. Read Fiction Express. Read magazines. We would love to hear about what you have been enjoying reading and some recommendations.

Maths – TT ROCKSTARS!! We know we say it all the time, but play, play and play some more. Challenge your teachers. Challenge your friends. Improve your ‘Rock Status’. Look out for live challenges with the teachers too. (The first one will be Tuesday 14th April at 10am)

Creative Curriculum
This work could be completed in your exercise books or on the computer (as a powerpoint or even a video presentation)


Ancient Mayan Sites
Can you research some more information about the Mayans. Your challenge is to find out as much as you can about the main ancient Mayan sites such as Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba.

This website is a good starting point http://www.mayankids.com/mmkplaces/mapregion.htm

Your challenge is to then create a travel guide for tourists on a visit to Mayan Mexico.  Considerations to make: clear accurate information with the location of attractions, best way to get the attractions, how much seeing the attractions costs, what the must see and must do things are etc…

Disappearance
Why did the Mayans disappear? Use your research skills to try and find reasons why the Mayans disappeared. When you have completed your research write a short discussion text explaining the possible reasons for their disappearance.
Some useful websites include:

Review
Write a review about your learning of the Mayans for year 4. What have you learnt? What was the best part of the topic? (e.g. Learning about the sacrifices, learning about the gods, map work, Mayan myths?)


More Activities
– (You do not need to complete all of these activities!)
Have a look at the ‘100 Things to do at Home’. Which ones will you try and complete??
Have a look at the ‘Home Learning Grid’. Which ones will you try and complete??

During this holiday, it is also important that you do some of the things that you enjoy and we look forward to hearing all about it when we are back at school.

Yours Sincerely
Mr Scott, Mr Tooby and Miss Bates
