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.
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!
From June – July, our project theme will be Ancient Greece!
We’ll be exploring the history of this incredible civilisation including the first Olympic games; Greek mythology, lifestyle and culture.
For our first day back (Monday 7th June) we’d like to invite children to dress up in Ancient Greek clothing as we kick off this brand new theme.
We’ve included some easy, child-friendly ideas below! But we’d love to see your own creations.
What a brilliant half-term!
Children wrote their own playscripts; composed their own soundtracks; designed and built their own theatres; and sewed their own puppets. Eventually, performing their very own puppet show based on Neil Gaiman’s The Wolves in the Walls.
Watch all of the final performances below!
