THE MAYA

Dear Year 6,

We are thinking about you all and hoping that you and your families are all staying well. We thought it might be nice for you to mix things up a bit and do some Maths, English and other subjects through learning all about the Maya. There are some interesting clips you may want to watch here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zq6svcw

You do not have to do all these tasks, but here are some ideas you might like to try over the next few weeks!

Maths: Find out about the Maya counting system. Can you write the numbers 1-20? What about some larger numbers? Play the following game to help you

https://maya.nmai.si.edu/maya-sun/maya-math-game

Use the following website to help you understand how the Maya calendar works (it is quite tricky!). There is a print-out you can use to create your own!

https://mayaarchaeologist.co.uk/2017/03/31/maya-calendar/

English: Write a detailed non-chronological report about an aspect of the Maya that you find interesting (temples, food, art, gods etc). Remember to include subheadings, paragraphs and pictures.

Write a magazine advert promoting your Maya-themed chocolate bar (See DT, below)

Remember to use persuasive techniques!

Design Technology: The Maya invented hot chocolate and believed that chocolate was a gift from their gods. Design a Maya-themed chocolate bar!

You will need to think about:

  • The ingredients and flavour of your product.
  • Packaging for your product.
  • How much you will sell it for.
  • A jingle for a radio advert.
  • A poster to advertise it.

Art: Find out about the significance of masks to the Maya. Then design/create one of your own!

Science: As we have discovered, the Maya loved chocolate!

Plan, carry out and write up a Science experiment to answer the question: Which type of chocolate melts the fastest? Remember to use the process below:

  1. Question: what you are going to ask.
  2. Hypothesis (prediction): your guess about the results, giving reasons.
  3. Method: your plan for doing the experiment. How will you make sure it is a fair test?
  4. Materials and Equipment: everything you need to do the experiment.
  5. Results and Data: what happens in your experiment.
  6. Conclusion: compare your results with your hypothesis. Were you right or not? What do you think caused the results you got? If you were to do the experiment again, what might you change?

You may wish to think about different types/flavours of chocolate (eg. milk, white, dark) or different brands of one type.

If you do not have any chocolate at home, you can still write up steps 1-4!

 

We hope that you enjoy the tasks that you are able to complete! Please do send us pictures of your home learning!
