The Maya

For the launch of our topic this term, we became, for an afternoon, chocolate conossieurs. Tasting and testing a variety of hot chocolates was a welcome treat. We reviewed them based on sweetness, flavour and colour. We discovered that The Maya first discovered chocolate and used it for a whole range of purposes, including medicinal!
We have also started to create a Mayan hieroglyph representing the values of our classes. We are using jungle animals in our hieroglyphs to represent creativity, strength and team work, to name a few!
We had to tea-stain paper to create a tree bark effect. We are going to put our final design onto our tree bark later this week.
