As part of this terms Learning Unit Theme 'Harmonious Habitats & Mysterious Mayans' we decided to make some well known dishes that originated from the ancient Mayans, including guacamole, black bean, tomato and chili salsa and pineapple salsa accompanied with corn tortillas.
"The Mayans invented many foods that are still eaten on a regular basis. They were the first civilization to make corn tortillas, and they used their avocado crops to make an ancient form of guacamole. The four staple foods in Mayan cuisine were squash, beans, maize and chili peppers, and they were often combined with meat or seafood. Squash, beans, and maize are often referred to as the "three sisters" because they provide all the necessary nutrients when eaten together."

Fletcher was selected for a place at an Olympic Training Camp as he was recognised as a 'top swimmer' in a recent gala. The training camp was held over two days where he did land and pool based training run by two Olympic swimmers. Liam Tancock in the photo held a backstroke World Record for 8 years, so certainly knows all about swimming. Fletcher had great fun and was inspired by the Olympics.
