King Edward Primary School and Nursery Excitement + Determination = Success


This term, we are very excited to introduce our final Y6 topic 'The Maya', which will initially begin with a short geography unit based upon Mexico, in order to set the scene for our ‘Maya’ learning before progressing on to a real history focus.


Throughout this topic, we will be exploring the history of the Maya civilisation and asking who, when, where and why as we learn more about this fascinating period of history.  In addition, we will be developing our understanding of Maya beliefs, with regards to gods and societal hierarchy.


As an added bonus, we will be embarking on an ambitious art project based upon the sculptures of Pedro Linares (a Mexican artist) and a DT project focused on weaving!
