Pitts River Museum

On Friday 17th January, Sycamore and Chestnut class visited the Pitts River Museum in Oxford to deepen their understanding and knowledge of the Ancient Maya civilisation to support this term's project. 

During the day , the children  explored Mayan artefacts and predicted what they may have been used for, as well as thinking about what these artefacts could show us about Mayan culture and beliefs. 

We finished the day be designing a typical headdress that Mayans might have worn to a Pok-a-Tok match!
