No live lesson today.


For today’s lesson we are going to focus on reflection of shapes. A reflection is an image or shape as it would be seen in a mirror.

When you are working with reflections you need to make sure each point (vertex) of the shape is in exactly the same point when using the mirror line reflection.

In the image above you can see that each point on shape A is exactly the same distance from the centre line as it is in shape B. The best way to work with reflections is to plot each corner of the shape using the distance from the mirror line and then join them up.


If you have a small mirror at home you could use this to check your mirror images – please remember to use a ruler for this work as you need to be accurate.



Quiet Reading Time – Bug Club

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.

Google Classroom at 10:50am for the first 15 minutes. (Click on the Meet Link). Please attend.


The first part of the lesson we will be online where we will be sharing a guided text about the types of food the Mayan people ate and their farming systems. The document is attached below, if you have the option to print it off and want to please do so, if not it will be shared on screen for you to see.


Remember when you come to reading and answering the questions in your book you are best to read through the text twice to make sure you are clear on what the text is about and where you will find key information. Think carefully about what the question is asking you before you answer.

European Discovery of the Maya


Today’s lesson we are going to be continuing with our topic about the Maya people.  We are going to be looking at how we gain knowledge of historical lifestyles and facts.  We will be identifying and using different sources (provides information) that help us gain our knowledge.

You will need to read through the presentation, it might be a good idea to take a few notes while you are reading, then answer the questions on the worksheet titled ‘Using Sources of Evidence.’


Once you have finished the first worksheet there is a second one titled ‘Historical Picture Study’ where you are to examine one of the pictures and answer the questions about it.  Give as much detail as possible drawing from the knowledge you have already learnt about the Maya civilisation. Once you have finished both worksheets you can attempt to draw your own version of the picture you have chosen.


The presentation, activities and images are all attached below.

Mayans Pots


The Maya made bowls out of clay to use for cooking as well as making ceremonial pots that had pictures or patterns on them. You could use play-doh or plasticine to make you own Mayan pot using rolled out sausages of clay/play-doh/plasticine and building the base and sides from coils, smoothing the sides. An upturned plastic pot could be used to support your creation and provide an even shape to coil around. Paint, draw or etch a design on it is complete.


I have popped some images below for you to get some ideas from.

We will begin to read some more of our class read ‘Skellig’ – this session will take place on Google Classroom. I will be reading Chapters 39, 40 and 41 during this session. I wonder how the baby is and how Michael feels about what has happened.
