We have had fun learning about ancient Greek vases and what the designs mean. Then we designed and painted our own.
This Morning a strange box was found in our classroom. It was torn at one corner and there were scratch marks and air holes on the box.
It looks like something has fought its way out of the box and left muddy tracks on the unit and the books.
Our class are currently trying to put together a newspaper report about what may have happened.
Starting the term off by researching Ellie Simmonds, the inspiring person our class is named after.Then finding out more about our class values, 'dedicated', 'committed' and 'ready for challenge'- we even finished with a challenge to see how ready we are!
To make a bridge using only 5 pieces of paper strong enough to hold Mrs. Imlach's phone off the ground for 5 seconds.
On Monday we went to Colchester Castle to find out more about the Romans. It was really interesting!
Did you know that Colchester Castle is the largest Norman Keep in Europe?
It was constructed on the foundations of the Temple of Claudius, built when Colchester was the first Roman capital of Britain in AD 54-60.
We were able to go under the castle into the foundations of the Roman temple.
Afterwards we were able to look around the museum and find out more about the Romans and dress up!
Then we worked together in groups to build our own Roman Temples.
