Term 3

Our Topic this term is entitled 'The Mayans'

What were the contemporary similarities and differences between the Ancient Maya and British civilisations? The Ancient Maya spanned from 1100 BC to 1502 AD, coinciding chronologically with the British Stone Age through to the Tudors. The location of the Ancient Maya can be found through map work and the accurate use of compass directions. Through studying trade, food, gods and calendars, we can compare the lives of two contrasting civilisations. Many aspects of the lives of the Ancient Maya continue to feature in our lives today, such as chocolate, astronomy and architecture. Weaving was used to create textiles and clothing throughout this time span; we will develop this skill.
