This term Willow Class (Year 4) have been learning about Ancient Greek history, art and literature. They have developed a good knowledge of mythology and the key historical events and people made famous in ancient times. Their visit to the British Museum inspired the children and brought the topic to life.
The class have been learning to present their work to an audience which they did with confidence at their class assembly. Parents, families and the whole school were impressed by their public speaking and performance as they sang, acted and presented information to the audience. They have been studying the myth of King Midas in English and are retelling and analysing it before writing their own versions.
Miss Campbell has noted that “the class have been really gripped by the topic. They learnt key facts and information about the time and used excellent critical thinking skills to ask questions, compare and contrast and view the period holistically; how art, literature and events link together to tell us the story of Ancient Greece in 2019. It has been wonderful to see how much they have learnt and how much they have enjoyed it.”
