Using levers and links

Yesterday Ruby class used their knowledge of levers and links to make simple toys that could be used by children aged 7-8 years old. In Ancient Greek times, toys would have been very simple, carved from wood or made from clay with simple levers and links to connect the various parts. We hope you like our interpretations.

Ancient Greece in Jet Class

On Monday, we launched our new Ancient Greece project theme.

Many children dressed up as Greek citizens or warriors; we tried writing our names in Greek and answering maths questions in Greek numbers.

At the end of the day, we got everyone together for a lovely class photo. Say hello to Ancient Greek Jet Class!
