We have been studying The Mayan Civilisation since the beginning of term and have spent many hours researching Mayan beliefs, ball games, foods, buildings and cities. We created numerous Keynote presentations which we showed a snippet of on the day. Furthermore, we made a 3D map of the Mayan area and some children in the class made temples to put at each ancient Mayan city.

As a class, we decided to try a novel approach for our assembly. We used a sheet and a light to perform a shadow drama. We chose to act out a Mayan ball game, with a twist of course! The losing team had to nominate one person to die. We chose our priest to perform this human sacrifice. The crowd thoroughly enjoyed the gruesome re-enactment!

With the help of Mr. Mannings, we performed a song from the rainforests using rain sticks, drums xylophones and body percussion to conclude.

It was a brilliant display of learning by all Year 6 students. Well done to each and every one of them.
