we have been learning about the Ancient Maya legend of the Hero Twins in our English lessons this week. It is a story of adventure, danger, magic and revenge! The Ancient Maya believed that it explained how the sun and the moon came to be in the sky. After reading and exploring the story, we summarised the key events and worked in groups to create freeze frames of certain scenes. Everyone else then has to guess which scene each group had acted out.
This week, we have been learning about negative numbers and how to calculate using them. To do this, we used Lego men! They helped us decide which direction to move on a number line when adding and subtracting negative numbers. Many thanks to Mrs Pratley who let us borrow the Lego men.
