Our topic this term is Ancient Greece. Our WOW day is Thursday 20th September in school. Letters have already been sent out. If you did not receive one please ask at the office.
Our first full week has flown by! We have enjoyed team building activities that promote our building learning powers and growth mindset. We have learnt a Greek Myth - The 12 Labours of Herakles/Heracles and created our own books. We have finished our Greek plates and used maps, atlases and globes to find different countries around the world. We have started learning and playing the glockenspiel.
Reading books and diaries have been set up and we hope that you have been learning spellings from the sheet we sent home last Friday. Next week we are hoping for dry weather so that we can start our Speed Agility and Quickness morning fitness - SAQ for short. These are seven, one minute activities that every child attempts designed to improve the fundamental PE skills of balance, locomotor and ball skills.
Please bring in junk modelling for masks making on Monday 17th.
Week 17th September - Friday 21st September.
It's Friday already! We have had another busy week in Class Caen, our WOW day was yesterday and the children thoroughly enjoyed their 'play in a day' (The twelve Labours of Herakles) with Sophie from The Plough Torrington. The children performed it using their masks made in class beforehand. We also had some Greek food tasting. The yogurt cake was a hit with most of the class which is more than we can say for the stuffed vine leaves and anchovies! Thank you to the parents that could make it.
Today we had our first spelling test, please try to help your child complete the three look, cover, write, check columns and choose some words to find definitions for underneath. All of the children should have written their test score for you to see on that weeks page. Next weeks spellings have been sent home today. We do set a side time to work on these spellings in class every week however, spending five to ten minutes a day on them at home really helps to consolidate their learning so a big thank you for your help.
HOMEWORK set on Friday 21st September.
Class Caen will be hosting a Greek Museum.
Please create an artefact of your choice along with an information card for display. The children will change the class into a museum on Thursday 18th October and invite other classes to come and find out about Ancient Greece.
If you are stuck for artefact ideas you could make/draw:
a Greek plate or jug, draw a poster of a soldier and label, find a Greek game that was popular, make a Greek house, boat or chariot or look at famous landmarks to name but a few!
Please send in artefacts from Monday 15th October. Any problems please come and see us.
