Aztec water deity painting by 8-year old Madison Dufton

Claremont Primary School, Tunbridge Wells

We visited Claremont on the last day of the Easter term 2010, and what a lovely school to end the term on! Great atmosphere - we even did an April Fool trick on them! - but we were highly impressed by the artwork and Aztec-themed resources they had developed during their topic for the term.

From the beautiful painting of a Mexica water deity by young Madison Dufton - having pride of place in the hall on our arrival (main picture here) - to the crafty ideas for Aztec games (one based on Top Trumps), clay ocarinas and jewellery, to the VERY realistic blood-stained Aztec main temple... Well done, all!
