Getting Messy!

This week, we have started making our Maya-inspired jewellery. On Monday,we spent a lesson researching what Mayan jewellery looked like and then on Tuesday, we sketched our own design. Finally, on Thursday, we got our hands dirty and made our pendants out of clay. They will now dry over the weekend, ready for painting next week! I can't wait to see the finished results!

The Mystical Maya!

 

We are 4 weeks into term and we have already learned so much about the Ancient Maya. We now know where they lived, what they ate, how important maize and chocolate were to them and how their society was organised. This week we discovered the Maya number system and invented Maya number puzzles to solve! 

 

Here are a few pictures of our work so far. Next week, we will start designing and making Maya inspired pendants and jewellery!

Mayan Hot Chocolate Recipe!        (14.9.18)
Some of our class were asking for the recipe for Mayan Hot Chocolate so they can make it at home - so here it is. I was able to buy all the ingredients at a local supermarket, even the bitter cacao powder!

Mayan Hot Chocolate!

 

On Tuesday, we had a great afternoon making and tasting Mayan Hot Chocolate. We mixed CACAO powder with hot milk and added cinnamon and chilli powder to make the hot chocolate as authentic as possible! The Mayan hot chocolate smelt amazing but tasted really bitter. We tasted CACAO nibs too which come from cocoa pods, again these smelt delicious but tasted very different! We finished off the afternoon with a cup of normal hot chocolate which had a taste that was much sweeter! Which one did you prefer?

What a great first week!           (7.9.18)

 

Well done to everyone in 5B for being such a wonderful class in your first week back. You all worked really hard in all of our lessons. In Maths we have been learning how to read and write numbers with up to 6 digits and in English we have started reading this term's book which is called Bella Balistica and the Temple of Tikal. We also started our new topic Mystical Maya and we now know where they lived - can you remember? On Thursday afternoon, we pretended we were archaeologists and investigated photos of Mayan artefacts.
