The Ancient Maya

More than 1000 years ago, the Maya civilization thrived in Mesoamerica. This region includes Central America and the southern part of Mexico. The Maya culture was rich and diverse. They studied the stars and the planets. They created calendars, developed a sophisticated system of writing and built incredible buildings.

Year 5/6 have constructed large heads based on Mayan sculptures and drawings. It has been great fun…..if a little messy!
