Ancient Greek day

Year 3 had a fantastic time on Ancient Greek day, dressed in their wonderful costumes.

First, the children practised some Ancient Greek maths – learning the different symbols and using them to solve calculations.

Next, we learnt about Ancient Greek theatre, and the children got creative by making masks for their performances. They loved using all the materials and making their masks double sided to show the different emotions of their character!

After making their masks, the children used them to show off their acting skills. Each group performed an Ancient Greek myth to the class and it was very entertaining!

In the afternoon, the children took part in their very own mini Olympics. They did the long jump, javelin, discus and sprint with the rest of the year group.

Finally, the children rounded of the day with an Ancient Greek feast. Thank you for all the lovely food that was brought in – the class were able to try a range of food including breads, cheeses, olives and grapes.

Overall, Ancient Greek day was a really enjoyable time for Year 3 and the children had a great time taking part in all of the activities. We have been learning about Ancient Greece since September, so the day was a lovely way for the children to put together everything they had learnt!

Freeze frames and feelings

Today in English, the children challenged themselves to think of interesting words to use in their writing, to describe feelings and emotions. They created freeze frames to for different parts of the Ancient Greek myth, Theseus and the Minotaur. This helped them to think about how the characters might have felt – look at the fantastic list of feelings and emotions that the children came up with! They then used this in their writing to describe the events of the myth.

Terrific Treat Day
