Class 3 excitedly took part in a live author event organised by the Book Trust Represents to celebrate the work of Black writers and illustrators. Joseph Coelho led the event and shared his inspirations for writing along with writers tips and writing games.
A copy of "Happy Here: 10 Stories from Black Authors and Illustrators," is available in the class for pupils to read and enjoy.
Class 3's journey of discovery about the Ancient Greeks is well under way! In English we have started reading Ali Smith's retelling of Antigone in anticipation of Class 3's own retelling of this myth and legend. In History, we have started to place historical events and people from past societies in a chronological timeline that spans across the whole floor of our large Hall! In Maths we have continued our learning of Place Value and used our mathematical skills to create accurate timelines with appropriate scales. And that's not all: amazing topic-themed homework has started to appear in class, and in some cases, crawl along the class!
Next week we will start learning what the ancient Greeks did for us.
As part of the wider curriculum, Class 3 are looking at Ancient Greece. We are writing myths that would make Homer proud. To link with this, the children are learning to use Blue Bots to navigate mazes - just like Theseus and the Minotaur. They looked at basic controls this week and navigated the tables in "Number of BlueBots". We were really impressed with their maths skills as well as debugging algorhythms. Next step is that they will be designing simple courses next week. Well done Year 5 and 6.
Once again it has been a very busy morning here in Class 3! Pupils have started to explore Greek myths and legends in more detail and continued developing their understanding of Place Value.
In English, we have read a Greek Myth and created questions using our VIPERS reading skills. While, in Maths, we have been continuing to develop our knowledge and understanding of Place Value.
