On Thursday 20th June, Years 5 and 6 took part in a Mayan workshop hosted by “Portals to the Past”. Available from Reception through to KS3, their range of history workshops for schools provide students with an experience designed to stimulate and encourage a love of history. Their team of workshop leaders have a genuine passion for the past, giving students a truly memorable, absorbing and educational experience.

We had a fantastic day filled with fun activities; we solved problems using the Mayan number system, completed a quiz, learnt about the Mayan calendar, and sacrificed Mr Green to the Mayan Gods.
The children all thoroughly enjoyed the day and the activities. We took some pictures on the day, which can be seen in the gallery below.
