We had a jam-packed and wonderful day at Maidstone Museum on our class trip. Having two hands-on and practical workshops in the morning was ideal. Firstly, we handled a range of ancient Greek artefacts and replicas and we had to decide what the theme of the items were. We then had the chance to make their own clay theatre masks and oil lamps which were marvellous. The class showed great focus and attention whilst completing the task. The afternoon session gave us the chance to explore the museum and complete the i-pad trail. This was met with opportunities to dress up in fashion through time which was enjoyed by many!

We had a go at staging our own mini version of the ancient Greek Olympics and competed against each other in five events; sprinting, shot putt, long jump, javelin and long distance. The winning girls and boys from each event were crowned champions - literally, receiving an olive branch wreath.
During 'Book Week' the class took part in a variety of activities related to bedtime stories including; making book marks, recipes for the best bedtime storytime, story stone sacks with Mrs Hayhoe, making story dream catchers and having a daily cosy reading time.

In topic this week, we have looked at the importance of temples to the Greeks and why they built them. We learnt that the built them as homes for their gods or goddesses and that they had a statue of that god in the temple. They were often made from stone or marble and had either Doric or Ionic columns. We then had a go at making our own.

Some of our descriptive writing in English was very impressive based on the characters from Pandora's Box! Here are just a few brilliant examples.

Zeus’ rough, white hair billows in unseen winds. His powerful posture creates a shimmering aura around him like a golden mist. Cunning shows in wrinkles that spread across Zeus’ face.        


As the wind delicately blew, Pandora’s golden locks danced around behind her. Every step she takes is as light as a feather drifting gently away. Her eyes are so blue and deep that if you saw them you’d be afraid that you’ll fall into them.                                                          


Zeus, king of the gods, listens to Earth whilst proudly holding his lightning bolt in his colossal fist.
