Year 5 and 6 Mayan Day!

We had an amazing time during our Mayan day this week! After making headdresses and meeting another ‘city-state tribe’ in the hall, we learnt more about the ancient Maya. We looked at the key events during the golden age of the Maya, investigated whether the Maya were brutal for carrying out sacrifices and looked at the evidence for why there the successful ancient Mayan civilization declined.

We also displayed our talents as chefs! Having already evaluated an existing  chili, we used ingredients from Central and South America to create our own chili dish. Our aim was to make an improved version of the one we tried earlier which, of course, we did!
