What we offer

As a team we offer artefact-based teaching programmes in schools, resources, and interactive video-conferencing sessions - on the Aztecs/Mexica and Maya (KS2 History) and on the Aztecs and the Spanish Conquest (1519-1535) (KS4 History), supplemented by craft workshops on a range of Mexican themes - from piñata making to yarn painting...

Since 1980 we have used music, dance, drama, costumes, artefacts, crafts, slides and other media to bring Mexican history and culture alive to some 210,000 British school children.
Our current team illustrated presentation on the Aztecs and Maya - aimed at KS2 - is a cross between an illustrated talk, workshop and full-scale theatrical performance. In a single morning the team bring a term’s study of the Aztecs and Maya to life in a way no book or static exhibition possibly can.
We’re constantly developing new programmes! Schools booking us will be kept informed of developments directly...
