To bring our learning to life, we have celebrated our History and DT learning today. We have worked with clay to make Mayan vessels and used our research skills to create double page spreads about the Mayan Gods and their beliefs.

What have you enjoyed about today?

Tell us a fact you have learnt about one of the Mayan Gods?

    My favourite part was making our pots out of clay. An interesting fact that I have learnt is that 60 cities were built by the Mayans and they had one ruler per city.
