This week children in Year 6 have been exploring the ancient Maya civilisation. We have read two Maya Myths, 'The Hero Twins' and 'Rain Player' and have used them to plan our own myth, where our hero characters are set challenges after upsetting the gods.
Children have learnt about the rainforests of the Yucatan peninsular, where the Maya lived as well as their house's, clothes and day to day life, through an immersive experience where children dressed up and explored the ancient Mexican's clothes, food and other artefacts. Year 6 finished the week by applying this knowledge to their creative writing setting descriptions. We look forward to sharing our completed myths with you soon!
