Mayan day

4S had a WOW day to introduce us to our new topic, 'Marvellous Maya!'

We started the day by finding facts, then we learnt about the Mayan Creation Story.

After this, we made headdresses and decorated them with accessories.

We sketched some old artefacts and created a working, Mayan calendar. 

Next, we learnt about Mayan food and cooked some traditional Mayan tortillas. We made a salsa, a bean dip and some guacamole to have with our yummy tortillas.
