Following on from the colossal success of Dr. Diane Davies last week, Year 5 continued their ongoing Maya study with an interactive workshop, delivered by the Mexicolore family. Through singing, chanting, dancing, ball games, drumming and some very elaborate costumes, both Year 5 classes learnt about the ancient and intriguing civilaztion in the most exciting way possible. Throughout the morning, the children enjoyed sharing their knowledge about the Maya, comparing them to the neighbouring Aztecs and discovering a few unusual facts along the way. Did you know that the Maya drilled jade stones into their babies’ teeth? Time to share our knowledge through writing. Tiahue! (Let’s go)
