Year 4: There is a fantastic BBC series on TV at the moment called ‘Spy in the Wild’. It links perfectly to our topic, ‘Wild Thing!’ and it can give you lots of extra information that we can use in our topic lessons.
Thursday BBC1 at 8pm or clips and episodes are available on BBC iPlayer.
On Friday we made Mayan Tortillas!
4S all worked brilliantly in their groups and made delicious tortillas. They were given a recipe card, the ingredients and equipment and we were left to cook!
After the lesson, we compared how we made the tortillas to how The Maya would have made them and wrote about similarities and differences.
Here is the recipe to try at home:
Today we had a lesson on teeth. We started the lesson by looking at some Mayan teeth from 3,000 years ago. We found out that The Maya used to sharpen and file their teeth to make them appear scary to other tribes. They also used to put precious stones and gems in their teeth to pay the Lords of The Underworld when they died.
Thankfully, we no longer file our teeth into points! We spoke about how we keep our teeth healthy each day and wrote a list of helpful hygiene hints.
After that, we learnt the correct names for the different types of teeth in our mouth and we discovered their functions. We compared our teeth to animal teeth and discussed why they were different.
What a lot of learning!
