A spectacular Ancient Greek day was enjoyed by year 3 today! Our morning began with a carousel of Ancient Greek arts & crafts activities including decorating Greek vases, Ancient Greek alphabet writing and making theatrical masks out of sustainable materials. Also, each class read and prepared a short Greek play, based on an Ancient mythical story, to perform. The afternoon's theatrical performance was a delight of inspiring Greek myths including, King Midas, Persephone and the Pomegranate Seeds and Daedalus & Icarus. These exciting performances were followed by a sumptuous Greek banquet of olives, grapes, Greek bread, figs and red current juice! All of the children gained a great, immersive, insight into the Ancient Greek world. A great big thank you to all of the fantastic, enthusiastic, staff who gave their time to help prepare and organise the Ancient Greek banquet and to all of the parents and carers support to make this day so special and magical!

Our Science investigation on Light
We have been investigating what is a shadow? and we have been creating shadow puppets in our classes to investigate light further. As we were doing this, the greatest natural light source shone into our classrooms - the sun! We were so excited as 'super scientists' to investigate further so we went outside to measure our shadows. We took turns to draw around our partners shadow using chalk and observed that when the sunlight is blocked by a solid object a shadow is formed.
