Week commencing 27th November: The children have had a fun week making their Greek Vases out of clay and have produced some fantastic replicas. We can't wait to see the final results next week when they have been painted. See our photo album for pictures of the pots.
Week commencing 20th November: This week, the children had great fun on their Greek day. They all looked fantastic in their Greek outfits, even Macy's dog decided to dress up for the occasion (see photos below).
They learned all about the Olympic games, made discus out of clay and even took part in their own mini Olympics. Well done to Austen, Holly, George and Riley who all won the competition of the long jump.
This is what we learned from the day:
Written by Charlie Deeks and Megan Avery.
On Tuesday we learned about the ancient Greek Olympic games. We learnt about all the events that went on during the week. On day one, they sacrificed a wile animal to Zeus. On the second day, they took part in a chariot horse race. On the third day, they did a pentathlon, which consists of running, long jump, javelin, discus, boxing and wrestling. On day four, they did wrestling, boxing and running in full armour. On the last day, they celebrated the winners by giving them an olive wreath and a massive celebratory feast.
They would repeat this every four years, just like we do today!
The children have been learning about retrofuturism and exploring artist techniques using a range media to achieve different effects. Throughout the weeks, they have used printing and drawing techniques to create their own artwork inspired by the artist Teis Albers. Here are their final pieces.
