Our Topic is currently 'Ancient Greece'. See our Topic web below to see what Rocket Class will be getting up to this term.
As part of our topic, we invited History Off the Page to set up an Ancient Greek day! We acted as Athenians during the Battle of Marathon and took part in various activities that would have been present in Greece at this time. When we received news that the battle had been won by Athens, we celebrated in a festival with plays, dancing and poetry.
We had an absolutely brilliant day. Thank you to Carl from History Off the Page who brought the day to life for us, and the parents who volunteered to help us with the activities!
This week in class, children had the opportunity to share the homework they have been completing all about Ancient Greece. We had many beautiful models of weapons, pictures of Greek myths and posters of clothes, food and houses at this time.
This half term we are developing skills for playing Tennis. These sessions will be on a Monday morning and a Friday afternoon.
We had a little competition to see how many bounces each child could get in 30 seconds this week. Everybody got a 1st attempt and then tried to beat their score in the 2nd attempt. Nearly everybody beat their score and it was brilliant!
Mr Hopkin-Jones came to visit this week and set us up with some scooters to use around the playground. We all had a lot of fun.
Year 4 are looking forward to their first residential trip at at the end of June.
