Gedney Drove End Primary School


Welcome to Norway class!

Class teacher: Miss M. Theobald

Teaching Assistant: Mrs V. Bills

Our values in Norway class: learning, listening to each other, working together, and never giving up.

This term, our topic is The Mayans. The Maya civilisation began long ago in a place called ‘Mesoamerica‘. This huge area is made up of Mexico and part of Central America.

The Mayas built amazing cities like Tikal (which they called ‘Yax Mutal’) and Palenque. Even though they lived in different cities, ruled by different kings and queens, the Mayas shared a lot of common beliefs and traditions.

They were experts at reading the stars and even built their cities as a map of the sky! I can’t wait to find out more!
