As a result of various CPD trips that Dr Diane undertook with teachers to the Maya area, a detailed scheme of work has been written on the Maya, which includes lesson plans and teacher notes  for teachers to download and use in their class.

This scheme of work is unique in actually being written by both a specialist on the Maya and primary school teachers who have spent time in the area visiting the ancient cities and spending time with the existing Maya.

In particular, Mark Woolley (Our Lady of Mount Carmel RC Primary School, Ashton-Under-Lyne), Richard Petts (Grindleford Primary School, Derbyshire), Jennifer Farmer (Aldington Primary School, Kent), Selina King (Holywell School, Bedfordshire) and Lisa White (Townend Junior School, Derbyshire).

All the proceeds of the sale will go to the Maya children at Melody School, Guatemala to support their education.
