Aztecs workshop with Mexicolore team

Denmead Junior School, Waterlooville

Our visit to this excellent school in Hampshire in 2010 was hugely rewarding and inspiring for us as a teaching team. Not only did we enjoy presenting to children, teachers, parents and governors, but we found the initiatives the school was taking were both unusual and exciting in equal measure...

Of course, the art displays and projects were great, just for starters - look closely at these children’s Aztec masks and at the detail in the plasticene sacrifice knife...

... Then read more (link below) of this school’s initiative in building a link with a primary school in Mexico, organising a mock trial of Cortés and Moctezuma, following it up with poems and other creative writing work, AND putting their questions and evidence to their counterparts in Mexico, forming a true ‘community of enquiry’. Congratulations to all concerned!

Denmead have promised to keep us posted of their project work, and we look forward very much to hearing and seeing more...
