Aztec Day

On 16th January, Year 5 ‘ignited’ their Aztec topic.

We started the day by becoming Aztec warriors and lots of the children has their faces painted.

We also looked at the work of Picasso and how he used different techniques to create masks. The children created their own Aztec masks using pastels. Can you see the exaggerated features?

The highlight of our day was preparing dishes to eat. The class made salsa and guacamole. We then tasted these with tortillas and corn on the cob. Afterwards, we tasted chocolate with a high cocoa content and some that even included chilli! We finished the day with a lovely mug of hot chocolate!

We found out lots about our topic and wrote questions about things we would like to find out more about. The whole class are very excited about finding out more!
