week 09

Summer term brings a new topic - for your 5 it is the Ancient Mayan Civilisation. We haven't taught you anything about this ancient (which means it doesn't exist anymore) civilisation, so you're going to have to do some research!

Ancient Mayans played ball games, such as 'Pok A Tok' or 'Pitz'. These were popular and played in front of huge crowds.
