During our sessions we had great fun finding out facts about life during the Ancient Greek times and how this period of history has links with current day life in the UK. We participated in a Greek voting game using black and white pebbles like they did all those years ago, shared some artefacts such as: round shields, helmets, spears, swords, theatre masks, plates, sandals and armour. We played a game called 5 lines which was fun and also had a go at using a stylus and ink to write our names in Ancient Greek. ‘That History Bloke’ was a brilliant visitor and we had a super time.
We celebrated Roald Dahl Day on the 13th September (Roald Dahl’s birthday). Many of us wore yellow as this is his favourite colour. Each class spent the day completing sessions linked to Roald Dahl.
We each donated £1 which will be given to the Roald Dahl charity, which provides specialist nurses and support for seriously ill children. Today, there are currently 82 Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses caring for over 21,000 seriously ill children across the UK.

We celebrated World Book Day on Thursday 4th March. As part of this day the children took part in many different activities linked to books. Year threes activities were mainly focused around a book called ‘Dirty Beasts’ by Roald Dahl, year fours tasks were based around a book from a series, ‘You’re a Bad Man, Mr Gum!’ by Andy Stanton’, year 5 completed tasks that linked to a book called ‘Wolf Brother’ by Michelle Paver’ and year sixes work focused on a story called ‘Malala’s Magic pencil’. We also listened to a virtual reading from an author called Stuart Reid. Many of us dressed up as book characters in school and at home.
