Year six have been learning about the Mayan civilisation this term. We found out where the Mayans lived and how their civilisation was discovered. We enjoyed finding out how they used masks in their culture. We designed our masks after looking at different types. We then made our masks out of clay, which we air dried and then painted.

Year 6 had a brilliant day at the food and farming day at Writtle College, Chelmsford yesterday (6th June). They were able to taste different foods including venison and sweet peppers; find out where some of their food comes from; taste some edible flowers and herbs; interact with different animals including alpacas and discover which machines the farmers now use to help them with harvesting their crops.

In science week, year six had great fun trying to make blood. We found out the composite of blood and used Cherrios, vegetable oil, red food colouring, marshmallows and sprinkles to make our own. We had to work out exactly how much we would need of each to make it as accurate as possible. Later on in the week we also found out about blood donation, the different types of blood groups and why they are different.
