Marvellous Maya

In this section...

Year 6 enjoy a visit from Maya specialist Dr Davies.

Year 6 are currently studying the Maya as their class topic.  Today they were lucky enough to be visited by Dr Davies, the only specialist on the Maya in the whole of the U.K.  She brought many artefacts for the children to examine, and they learnt about the Maya number system, made a Maya calendar and heard all about her time in the jungles of Belize discovering new Maya evidence.

They also learnt that certain Maya 'facts' are often myths that are incorrect on the internet, so she put them straight.  It was a fascinating morning and many thanks go to Dr Davies for teaching Year 6 so much.
