Year 5HB

Groovy Greeks

15 Jan 2020

We are the second week into our first Spring term and it has already been busy.


We have continued our learning about Ancient Greece, acting out the Battle of Troy and studying the story. In our Guided Reading sessions we have been thinking about the thoughts and feelings of King Menelaus, Queen Helen and Odysseus. 

We have spent time researching facts about the battle and are about to start writing a newspaper article about the war!


In computing we are using Sketch Up, which is a 3D design software, we have been learning how to use it and been making 3D sculptures with the plan to start creating our own Greek temples next week.


This Friday we have an Olympic gymnast coming into school to tell about his journey to becoming a professional gymnast and the struggles he has encountered along the way. Followed by some PE activities.


I hope you've had a lovely week so far!
