Ancient Greeks

Rowan class have been learning about the Ancient Greeks and their battle formation called the phalanx. We designed and made Greek shields and re-enacted a battle. It was lots of fun!

 

Trip to the Ashmolean Museum

On 7th July we went to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford to expand our knowledge about ancient Greece, but ended up learning more than we expected! We saw some very fascinating artefacts, including a mummified adult, boy, baby and cat! There was a gallery full of old-fashioned money. The Greek money had a variety of different images on. It was exhilarating because it was new learning for us.

After lunch we took part in a workshop about ancient Greek Olympians and how they liked to show off their muscles. We were given artefacts and had to guess what they were and what they were made of.

Mirabel C: “This was one of the most knowledgeable trips I’ve ever been on. I would advise everyone to go.”

Learning About Factors in Maths

We were learning about factors in maths by using counting blocks.
