Curriculum: Year 5
Year 5 have spent the summer term learning all about the Ancient Greeks. The children have studied the Greek gods and goddesses, found out about the modern and ancient Olympics and learnt about daily life in Ancient Greece. On Monday 1st July, they went on an educational visit to trip to The British Museum in London. The children were excited to see some artefacts in real life that they have learnt about at school. The vast array of Greek vases depicting daily life were fascinating and getting up close to the statutes and stone work from the Parthenon was amazing. The children also participated in a workshop about Greek life that involved lots of drama activities and handling replica artefacts.
In English, the children been working hard on suspense narratives. They have been using their imaginations to create tension and atmosphere in their writing. What do you think is behind this door?
