For the last few weeks,  the topic work will be all about The Maya.  This will include some art, DT and history.


Meet The Maya


In the jungles and hills of Central America, lie the ruins of a society that has fascinated historians for decades – the Maya.  By around AD900, the Maya were an astonishingly advanced society with their own ways of doing everything from farming to maths.


Fascinating facts


Geniuses in the jungle


The Maya were a very advanced bunch who built a successful society.  They were experts in architecture and maths, and invented their own calendars, sports, writing systems, farming methods and religion.  Pretty impressive, right?
