We had a busy afternoon discovering the Ancient Maya countries and capital cities on a map. We are looking forward to our next lesson which is going to be about the Maya Calendar.
Today we elected our School Council Representatives. We heard some fantastic speeches and it was a very close contest. We are pleased to announce that Phoebe and Finlay have been elected.
Today we were given a set of photographs to sequence into a story, we then went around the groups sharing the sequences and stories. We were then introduced to the ‘Lucy Gray’ poem by William Wordsworth which tells a story in the form of a Ballard. To help us to understand what happened in the poem we hot seated some children to find out more.
On Monday, Tony North visited our class and we had a brilliant day learning more about the Ancient Greeks. In the morning, we worked together to build a model of the Parthenon. In the afternoon, we rehearsed a Greek Myth and then we performed it for Year 5. We all had a fantastic time and Year 5 enjoyed watching us perform.
