Mrs Cox and Mrs Shackleton would like to welcome you to Morpurgo Class!

Please scroll down for more information about our learning!
We are a hard-working class of Year 3 and 4 children;
Mrs Shackleton teaches us on Fridays, Mondays and Tuesday mornings; Mrs Cox teaches us on Tuesday afternoons, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  We are also very lucky to have Mrs Burns and Mrs Robinson helping us with our learning during the week.

This term our exciting topic has a History and Geography focus, and is all about the ancient civilisation of the Maya people.

In our cross-curricular learning, we will be answering questions such as:

Who were the Maya and how do we know about them?

Where did they live and what was life like in Maya society?

During our English unit on Information Texts, we will extend our knowledge of clothing and fashion by researching what the Maya people wore, and then using our Art and Design skills to create some decorative Maya fashions of our own!




We have started our term with some Digital Art - taking photographs, editing and improving them using the App 'PicCollage'.  Having evaluated our pictures, we have created a second version, and now will move on to recording visual images from a 'thought-provoking' viewpoint.
