Mayan Tiles

Within our topic of Mexico this term, we have been studying the Maya civilisation.

So far we have looked at the overall history of the Mayans, including looking at a variety of pictures and other sources in order to form questions, and filling in a timeline of important events. We looked at their creation story and are linking this to a dance. We’ve also looked at the Gods they used to worship and even created our own versions!

This week, we have been making clay tiles in the style of the Mayans. We thought about patterns and details used by the Mayans in art last week, and applied this learning to engraving our clay tiles this week. Everyone’s design was unique and fantastic!
