We had a fantastic day on Friday 29th January when our very own Maya warrior 'Big Nose' came to visit us. We started the day by speaking some Mayan and learning how to count before playing some games. Then we learnt lots of information and some of us even got to dress up. We were able to hold real Mayan artifacts from Mexico! We did lots of drama activities to help us remember things to do with sacrifices, rituals, the ball game, Gods, food, trading, houses and traditional stories. The day finished with a big quiz to test our knowledge! Have a look at the pictures below!
Have a look at the videos below to find out more about how the Maya lived. We will be learning a variety of different things about how the Maya lived such as their food, clothes, housing, religion and other traditions.
