Investigating the Ancient Maya

As part of our History topic about the Ancient Maya, Year 3 have been learning all about the Maya Civilisation. We have explored the number system, which had a concept of zero for place value, and then looked at the logograms that made up the hieroglyphic language. We then immersed ourselves in the food of the Ancient Maya by making Mayan hot chocolate, which included chilli and cinnamon. We can’t wait to try and make our own tortillas soon!
