Oak Class

Oak Class is a class of 25  Year 5 and 6 children, taught by Miss Wooff and Mrs Unsworth. Our teaching assistant this year is Mrs Swindlehurst.

This term in Oak Class our topic will be:

‘Magnificent Maya’.

We will focus our learning on the question:

What was life like in Ancient Maya?

We will be exploring Mayan cities, religion and beliefs, architecture and daily lifestyle. We will consider the role of archaeologists, and how we can evaluate primary sources. We will also be studying three different types of Mayan masks and their writing system in our art lessons. Additionally, we will be learning about the Geography of Central America. This will include learning about the location, climate, culture (including food!) and traditions of this vibrant country.

In RE, we will be focusing on ‘The Eucharist’ and the big question: Why do Christians celebrate the Eucharist? We will be exploring the importance of the Eucharist and developing our understanding of why it is celebrated. We will be identifying links between the Passover meal, Last Supper and Eucharist and we will develop our understanding of the Eucharist and the symbolism connected with it.
