Play in a day - The Mayans

Today we started our learning about the Mayans as we welcomed Mark from Konflux Theatre Company into school. He worked with Year 6 all day to create, learn and perform a play - all based around the Mayan civilisation. We learned that cocoa was more valuable to the Mayans than gold; that only the bravest men would dare look into a mirror and that a flat face was considered so beautiful that the Mayans used to beat each other with planks of wood to achieve this! Hhhmmm!
