Visit to Ufton Court
To support the work in their Tudoe topic this term, the children in year 5 and 6 visited Ufton Court near Reading. Ufton Court is an Elizabethan manor house and as well as looking at the architecture of the period the children also tried some Tudor Dancing and looked at a variety of artefacts from the period.
To launch their topic for Spring term the children in Year 5 and 6 enjoyed an entertaining morning learning all about the Mayans.
They dressed up, joined in with traditional chants and played the Mayan Ball Game. They also learnt about the Mayan Gods and the four different worlds that featured in the Mayan culture.
