Ancient Greek WOW day
On Thursday 30th March, Year 3 had their WOW day to conclude their topic 'Ancient Life'. We all dressed up as Ancient Greek people. We learnt about the Battle of Marathon, we were the Greeks and the Persians were trying to take over our land. Through the day we kept getting information from the battlefield which told what happening. Unfortunately, we kept hearing that most of our soldiers were being killed in the battle and we were losing! While we were crafting objects for the God Athena, we discovered two spies in our community. We put them on trial in our democracy, but only the two magistrates and Mr Griffiths were able to vote because in Ancient Greece no slaves, foreigners, girls or children were allowed a vote. The decision was that the two spies would be thrown from the mountain at 4 O'Clock (but this didn't actually happen!).
During the afternoon, we learnt that our Greek army had began winning the battle against the Persians and by the end of our banquet we discovered through a messenger that we were victorious! We had an amazing day and had lots of things to take home at the end of the day. We were all very proud of our creations. Have a look through the pictures below to see what fun we had.
Red Nose Day for Comic Relief
Let me hear say "Come on it's Red Nose Day!"
On Friday 24th March we came into school with red clothes on to support Comic Relief. We also went on a nose hunt around school which was lots of fun. We sang our Red Nose Day song in assembly and Mr Griffiths and Mr Wheeler made a Comic Relief video photobombing the teachers with red noses on! It was a great day with lots of laughter.
Topic and DT
We have been busy making ancient Greek laurel wreaths in preparation for our WOW day next week! We used green card, scissors, glue and felt tips to add detail.
Topic and Art - Ancient Greek vases
In topic we have been learning about the Ancient Greeks. In art we have started to make paper mache Greek vases which we know are historical artefacts. Here's some pictures of us getting messy!
For our home learning last week we took part in the Eco council's competition to make something useful out of something you would usual throw away. Take a look at some of our entries below:
In science we have been learning about food chains. We each looked in an owl pellet which are the bones and fur that they cannot digest. The were a little bit gross to start with but fun to look at. Take a look at what we found below.
