Hello Aslans. Today we are learning about different types of food eaten by the Ancient Maya.  Watch the video to find out more! Can you guess the mystery item? 

Learning Objective: To learn about different types of Ancient Maya food

I can remember to:

  • Name different foods that were eaten by the Ancient Maya people
  • Explain how the food was used
  • Explain why certain foods were particularly significant

Here are your tasks for today. Choose the level that is the right challenge for you.

Mild requires you to match the name and picture of food to a description. 

Medium requires you to match the food and pictures and fill out missing words in the description.

Hot requires you to create your own fact sheet about the different types of food with the option of doing further research.

Apologies if you have already completed this lesson. I did make my changes to last week's lesson before scheduled on the timetable, but I know a few of you were very organised in getting your learning completed. If you have already completed this week's task, maybe you could try and complete a potrait in one of the other styles that we evaluated two weeks ago:


This week we are continuing our artist study of M.C. Escher and using his 'Hand with Reflecting Sphere' as our inspiration.



L/O: I am able to draw a reflected image


I can remember to -

- choose a reflective utensil

- draw your hand and the utensil

- draw yourself and your surroundings inside the utensil


When you have finished your artwork, you can share a photo of your work here

Please evaluate your work here


First thing that we need to focus on is how to draw your hands. Here is another amazing Escher drawing, which focuses on his hands:



Use the drawing tutorial to help you learn how to draw a hand:

Here are some examples of how people have used Escher's self portrait to inspire their own artwork

- Wednesday -

Pancake Day (or Shrove Tuesday) is on Tuesday 16th February. This day is a Christian Holy Day that marks the first day of Lent and will be celebrated by many in February half term. So, I thought as our last PE lesson before the holidays we would get active with some pancake flipping movements.

**Make sure you have lots of space**

**Also, please do not use real pancakes in this video**

I told you it was tricky! It looks like you're having a lot of fun here 😁🍴

Extreme Earth - Earthquakes!

Using the information from the videos, have a go at answering the questions below.

There is also a great page on BBC Bitesize with another animation  - click HERE to have a look yourself!

Scientists study earthquakes so we can understand them better and hopefully one day predict them so we can save thousands of lives. A seismograph is a tool scientists use to record earthquakes and measure their strength.

You can build your own seismograph using simple materials!

You will need:

  • a medium-sized cardboard box
  • a paper or plastic cup (you could also use a toilet roll!)
  • string
  • a felt tip pen
  • scissors
  • a piece of paper
  • tape
  • coins, marbles, small rocks, or other small, heavy objects to use as weights
  • another person to help :)


Watch the video below to find out how to make your seismograph:

Just for fun!

Answer the clues then search for these key words in the wordsearch. Good luck!

You can share all your super Science work by clicking HERE.


Amazing work Aslans! I am so impressed with your homemade seismographs - you are such super scientists!

Thank you for your video whizzy worker. It's great to see your seismograph in action!
