On Thursday 5th March Oak class met Balem a Soothsayer priest from the city of Tikal.
We learned about the Mayan pyramids , the Temple of Kukulcan, and cities and all sang a pyramid building song!
We then learned about how rubber was made and how that was used in the Mayan ball game Pok-ta-Pok.
Some children were chosen to re-enact the Mayan 'Hero Twin's myth, including playing a ball game against the Lords of Death!
We learned about the Mayans beliefs and gods and sacrifice, and the God of Maize.
We ended with a Mayan tribal rain dance for all!
Here are some photos of our amazing experience.
