The Mysterious Mayans visit Year 3
On Tuesday the 13th of January Year 3 took part in a Mayan workshop lead by Holly from the Unravelling History Company. The children experienced what life was life for the average Mayan person nearly 2000 years ago. The children got to experience making cloth, having to spin wool and cotton threads to then weave them on looms. We got to learn about Mayan writing, which was one of the early forms of pictoral writing known and we even learned how to write Mayan numbers. It was an information and fun filled morning which we all enjoyed.
