Maya stelae are monuments that were fashioned by the Maya civilization of ancient Mesoamerica. They consist of an upright slab of stone, sculpted and worked in relief in 1,2 or 4 faces.
Year 6 have recreated their own versions, using layers of cardboard to give a 3-D effect and detail. The children had great fun, and they look very impressive on display in the classroom.
This half term, Year 6 have been looking at the Mayan Empire , in conjunction with our Reading text , The Curse of the Maya.
Their sculptures and carvings were particularly interesting to the children , so in Art lessons, using bars of soap, we carved out our own designs. The results were amazingly creative and the classroom smells really nice too!
Please take a look at some of our fantastic homework on The Maya!
