As part of their Humanities topic this term, Year 4 have been learning about the Aztecs. On Monday 6th November the children took part in an Aztec day run by Mexicolore.

The children learnt some Aztec numbers, the importance of precious stones and feathers to the Aztecs and looked in detail at the Aztec Sunstone. The children also learnt about some of the ancient percussion instruments and even played some of them. We finished the morning with an exciting Aztec ball game called ‘Ulama’ with a musical accompaniment played by the children!

It was a wonderfully engaging, informing and entertaining workshop with a wealth of knowledge being shared with the children and an extremely impressive array of Aztec artefacts.
