Welcome to Athelstan Community Primary School

In Year 4, as part of our topic launch, we created Mayan Masks inspired by the ancient Mayans and tasted a variety of chocolate.  We discovered that masks were used for a number of reasons and that many of the masks had snake designs on them or other dangerous animals as their main was to intimidate the enemy.  We then used our designing skills to create our own Mayan masks.

Year 4 also tasted a range of chocolate to compare how the percentage of cocoa affects not only taste but the texture of chocolate.  We then used our ICT skills to create graphs showing our results.

Finally we designed and made our own bars of chocolate – they were delicious!In Year 4, as part of our topic launch, we created Mayan Masks inspired by the ancient Mayans and tasted a variety of chocolate.
