Term 5

Dear Topaz, 

I hope you are all well and safe! I am sure that you are all keeping yourselves busy, and keeping your brains active. As the Easter holiday comes to an end, I wanted to kick start our Term 5 topic: Hola Mexico! I am super excited about this topic because you are all so enthusiastic when it comes to exploring other cultures. Below, you will find lots of links to activities and areas to research; I know you will all enjoy being independent in your studies of Mexico. Please keep your work, take photos of your cooking, make videos of your Spanish and most importantly - have fun! I look forward to seeing and hearing all about your learning soon!

Keep active, be helpful, stay cool and love learning!

Love, Miss Phillips x

Here are some engage (week 1 and 2) activities you can do at home to immerse yourself in our new topic, like we would at school. Over the next 2 weeks, you can conduct research into Mexican festivals, landscape, climate, food, art, learn some Spansih or explore Mayan history!
