ART & TOPIC
This week we have started our new and exciting topic, The Ancient Greeks. We have come up with questions we would like to answer and we have researched Ancient Greek Vases. Over the next few weeks, we will be designing, making and painting our very own Ancient Greek Vases.
Maple Class 2016/2017
We have had an exciting term and have started to look at Anglo- Saxons and Scots. This topic will follow on into next term as well. We have explored how the Romans left Britain and the Anglo- Saxons and Scots took over. We have specifically looked at Village life and how it differs from ours; artefacts and how they allow us to learn about the past and their religion and its similarities and differences to Christianity.
Towards the end of term we had a DT Day which was closely linked to our science topic of electricity. In teams we created our own design criteria and built a battery powered lamp.
Everyone has worked extremely hard this term.
We have had an exciting term continuing to learn about the ancient Greeks. We visited the Holburne Museum in Bath where we made ancient Greek plates and then completed our topic with an ancient Greek day. This involved the children taking part in an ancient Greek reading, writing and maths lesson. We competed in our own version of the Olympic games before making our own Greek sculptures using soap.
Everyone has worked incredibly hard this term.
