Week 3 - 20th January 2020

Maths;

This week we had a continued focus on Addition and developed our understanding of how to regroup tens and ones when adding three digit numbers. 

English;

As part of our exploration of Fables , which is linked to our theme about  Ancient Greeks, we explored what a fable is and we made posters about their characteristics.

What have we done so far ?

  • Read the story and discussed the characters and the plot.
  • Written detailed description of the Fat Rich King and discussed his personality and motivation for his actions.
  • Written an equally detailed description of the Lion King and compared and contrasted him to the Fat Rich King.
  • Created our own lands from food pictorially and we described our creations.
  • Written a diary entry using the persona of the Fat Rich King and describing his first dramatic encounter with the Lion King.
  • Described the battle scene between the two armies , a.k.a. the 'Food Fight' scene. We had a particular focus on using prepositions during this activity.

History;

We have continued our investigations about the Ancient Greeks and have focused on the Ancient Greet army and their weapons. We also learned about the Athenians

and Spartans . We were very surprised by the difference in these city states and how their cultures were in such contrast to each other.

Art: 

We had a very exciting time on Monday making our clay pots! We had designed them after looking at pictures of Ancient Greek pots.
