This term our topic is Ancient Greece. We have been reading different Greek myths, which we will be turning into playscripts. We have also designed and made our own Greek masks and puppets to represent these characters. Our finished products were creative, inventive and amazing!
On Wednesday 17th May we enjoyed a fantastic Greek day, where we all came to school dressed as an ancient Greek! We had a fabulous day, trying different Greek foods such as Greek yoghurt, olives and tzatziki. We also had a go at some traditional Greek dancing! Maybe we should try plate smashing too next time! A big thank you to all the parents who supported us by sending your child to school in costume - they all looked amazing!
Robin Hood & Sherwood Forest
In our topic lessons, we have been learning all about Sherwood Forest and the legend of Robin Hood. We have been drawing maps, finding out information and acting out the many stories of Robin Hood. These are some photographs to show the activities that we have done.
This week we have been busy designing and making our own musical instruments. Thank you to everyone who managed to bring in boxes, cartons and tubes. Have a look at the amazing instruments the children made!
We have really got into the spirit of Christmas over the last week. We had our Christmas dinner, which was served to all the children by their teachers and teaching assistants. During the week, we made Christmas decorations, calendars and Christmas cards. We also had party day and we all dressed up in our party clothes and ate far too much! Finally, our last day was amazing - we watched The Polar Express in the hall and played our games from home in the afternoon!
Reduce, Reuse and Recycle Play in a Day
On Monday 28th November we were visited by Ben from Konflux Theatre, who worked with Class 3 all day helping us to put together a play all about recycling. We had lots of fun whilst also delivering important messages that help us to look after the environment. We performed our play to the rest of the school at the end of the day. We would like to thank Veolia and Konflux Theatre, who work with Nottinghamshire County Council, for providing this workshop. We even received a special gift - a pen made from recycled plastic and pencils made from recycled newspaper! Amazing!
During the second half of the autumn term we have been learning about early man.
On Thursday 24th November, classes 1,2 and 3 went on an amazing trip to Creswell Cags in Derbyshire. We studied lots of genuine artefacts from the stone age as well as handling many replicas. By studying bones and weapons, we learnt many more interesting facts to extend our knowledge of this period in history. We even experienced what it would have been like to live in the stone age as we walked through the caves and tunnels. The children (and staff) had a great day - it really brought the past back to life for all of us!
English - Fables
Class 3 had lots of fun acting out some fables. The fables included 'The Tortoise and The Hare', 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' and 'The Lion and The Mouse'. One group acted out each story and the rest of the class needed to work out the moral of the story.
