During this term, for those of us in classes 9 and 10 our topic will be Meet the Greeks! A topic which, as the title suggests, focuses on everything to do with ‘Greece’ from the study of the ‘Ancient Greeks’ to the climate and land use of ‘Modern Greece.’
Our Greek studies will not just be limited to our foundation subject studies, our English will be based around the texts by acclaimed children’s author, Anthony Horowitz. The books that we will be reading bring myths and magic back to life! Good and evil battle bitterly for dominion over the Earth in these epic tales of magic, murder, heroism and war, retold by a leading voice in children’s fiction. What are the hallmarks of a true hero? What happens when you anger the gods? And how do these magical beings meddle in the lives of men? Stories from Ancient Greece, Norse legends, Inuit stories and many other cultures come together in this ultimate collection of legends, brimming with great victories, narrow escapes and tragic defeats. We will take inspiration from Horowitz to write our own spellbinding myths and legends.
When the students become the teachers!
As part of our linking project with St Peter's C of E Primary School- we spent the day at M6 theatre meeting our link class 4C!
We watched a theatre production of 'A little Gift' and took part in a workshop to create freeze frames whilst getting to know our new friends.
Please watch our video of the day...
Welcome to Class 10's page!
We are excited to start our year off with the Wonderful Romans- learning how to write a battle cry and reading a Roman Slave's diary. Please read our newsletter for this half term.
Spellings will be given out on a Friday (a personalised list based on spellings that your child may have struggled to spell in class that week/from the National Curriculum) and will be tested the following Friday.
We will also be having a massive push on learning all of our times tables up to 12x12 both forwards, random recall and backwards.
PE kits need to be in school for our PE lessons and swimming kits also need to be brought in every Monday.
We ask that every child reads at home and are asked questions about what they have read.
I am looking forward to meeting my class' parents at parents evening in a few weeks- please remember that I am also available to speak to at the end of most days!
Please keep on checking our class page for updates- we do like to show off our hard work!
