Year 4 Learn About The Aztecs

This term, Year 4 are learning about the Aztecs in their History lessons and on Thursday 4th October, they were treated to a wonderful Aztec workshop.


The children had great fun dressing up in traditional costumes and taking part in musical activities. The workshop began with the entire year group chanting in the ancient Aztec language, Nahuatl. We learnt so much about the Aztecs from what they ate to why they sacrificed humans! We even had the opportunity to take part in an Aztec ballgame. Whilst the crowd cheered, the players had to strike a rubber ball to each other using only their hips. Everybody had an inspiring day as the Mexican history and culture was bought to life.
