Spring Term 2 - Mayan History
This half term we are delving into the ancient world of The Maya, a truly enchanting ancient civilisation whose creations have influenced the way we write and use a calendar; the food we eat; and some will argue that they were some of the first astronomers!
Who was it that gifted humans with chocolate? Did you know that the Mayan's used hieroglyphics too? Where is Central America, and can you name three countries there? How many Maya gods or temples can you name? What language did they speak? Are there any of The Maya alive today?
If you're ready and believe it is possible to write a Mayan version of the Three Billy Goats Gruff, come and join us on our voyage back in time...
