This morning, Year 5 presented their learning about the Mayans and a Mayan Legend, the Hero Twins, to their families and friends.
The Mayans were certainly a brutal civilization, but we have them to thank for many scientific advancements we now take for granted, such as observatories, our calendar system and even hot chocolate (though theirs was a bit bitter!)
In literacy lessons, Year 5 have also been looking at the stories of the Mayans and decided to retell one famous story, the Hero Twins, in their assembly.
The class were excellent as they acted out this complex myth, and parents were then entertained by a final anthem about the triumphs of the Mayans (Miss Watson’s lyrical talents were showed off…)
Thank you to everyone who came to see the children and a huge well done to all the pupils for their hard work!
