We explored how we know what the Maya ate and how they stored food.
Today we focused on plant food – how we preserve food, how we know it is safe to eat and all about food waste.
We played a game of Date Detectives! We identified how the food is preserved and the type of date on he food.
We are going swimming every morning for the next two weeks. Swimming is wonderful exercise. It keeps us fit and healthy.
We have started a new writing initiative in our school this half term, Talk For Write.
We have used our new text, The Nowhere Emporium, to inspire our writing.
We have experimented with: time adverbials, similes, relative clauses, semi colons, alliteration, parenthesis and repetition for effect.
This afternoon we made three different Maya hot chocolate recipes. We used cacoa powder and chilli powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and honey. Some recipes were more delicious than others!
Our class were the choir for today’s First Holy Communion celebration. They all sang beautifully.
Today, we listened to a Mayan folk tale called, The Chocolate Tree. It featured the Chichen Itza temple. We wrote our own chocolate tree stories and made our own Chichen Itza temples.
