Katherine Johnson weekly class update 07/05/2021

After the extra long weekend, we have enjoyed a week back in class together! We have been exploring different Mayan cities and discussing how each city had its own set of rules. We discussed the benefits and disadvantages of this as a class and then designed our own Mayan city! We had to think carefully about the buildings we needed and where they would be situated in our city, as well as making sure that we could provide food as well. They wouldn’t of had Mayan McDonalds back then (which some of us were highly disappointed about!).

We have also started learning how to code a Times Table maths game from scratch; this will be a project that we will build upon weekly! We are becoming fantastic coders!

In English this week, we have been planning and writing our own independent adventure stories. They have been fascinating to read and the children are very proud of them! Well done to all of Katherine Johnson on producing some interesting and fantastic adventure stories! Your writing has come on leaps and bounds!
