at home Gabby did some research on the internet about Ancient Mayans she found out that they made up tattoos and had lots of symbols. She copied some of the symbols and made a poster. She also wrote 10 facts.



We have been writing Manchester based poems to show how great Manchester is. We wanted to show a tribute to the people of Manchester in respect of the terrible loss we are feeling.

In Castleshaw we had lots of fun and everyone really enjoyed it. First we went into the classroom and discussed animals and habitats. We looked at some stuffed animals, including a badger, mole. Rabbit and heron! After this we explored the valley. We had fishing nets and tried to find some water creatures. We had a key to identify different things we found. We found all sorts of river dwellers, including sticklebacks (fish) and shrimp. We finished the day off with some team games, where we had to work together to reach some targets. What a fantastic day!

Mayan Weapons

Tom has made a Mayan shield and spear for his homelearning.

First Tom and his dad used a saw to cut the wood for the shield. They then dismantled a broom for the spear. Tom and his mum then painted the shield, doing the big bits first, and then painted the spear and got some string and wrapped it round the top and the bottom of the spear and then put the feathers. They then put the details on the shield.

Over the weeks we made some Viking long boats and some Viking shields. We made them out of card board and we put as much detail as possible on them. On the Viking shield Ella used some recycling materials like a yogurt pot for the top and on the Viking long ship Alicia used cardboard for the oars and so did George.
