Red Deer Class

Last half term, we participated in some fantastic learning in Red Deer. Our topic of Ancient Greece was very exciting and we greatly enjoyed our book- Who Let the Gods Out by Maz Evans. We completed some brilliant writing about the story of Medusa and the children used some fabulous descriptive techniques to describe her. In our Maths, we worked on place value, including negative numbers and also our four operations. 

In Art we designed and made some Greek Vases depicting the story of Medusa upon them. The children were able to hone their sketching and drawing skills and also their mosaic skills. In History we looked at Ancient Greek Democracy, the differences between the Athenians and the Spartans, Ancient Greek Philosophers and the Olympics. We learnt that Ancient Greece have massively had an impact on our world today and was an extremely influential civilisation. In Geography, we looked at the physical geography of Greece and made holiday brochures considering the features and the weather. In Science, we greatly enjoyed learning about Earth and Space and recorded our own Space Podcasts, which can be found on the Google Classroom.

In P.E lessons we have been honing our swimming and also our invasion games! We really enjoyed learning hockey and had some great ball skills.

Next half term, we are looking forward to learning all about the Victorians and some local history.
