Gods and Mortals
We are going to discover a world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes.
Many Ancient Greeks have influenced the Western world e.g. Pythagoras and Archimedes.
Did you know?
That the Ancient Greeks invented the theatre.
The first two letters of the Greek alphabet (Alpha and Beta) gave us the word alphabet.
Year 3 visited Clitheroe Castle to meet a Dragon Protection Officer. The children enrolled in The Society For the Welfare Of Rare Dragons (SWORD).
We learnt about different types of dragons.
The White Dragon is found in cold places. The White Dragon likes to eat ice-cream, its favourite flavour is mint chocolate chip!
The Green Dragon
The Green Dragons likes to eat food which is green, especially vegetables.
The Black Dragon has is also known as a Dinner Dragon and a Pen Dragon. It lives in Pen Castle.
The Blue Dragon
These dragons like looking at themselves in the mirror, they wear blue make up!
Our class assembly was all about myths and legends. We talked about some of our favourites. We also shared our sword technique to keep us safe from angry dragons.
This week children learnt about Pandora’s Box. We learnt when Pandora opened the box horrible things such as hate, despair, war, disease and jealousy where released into the world. A little voice in the box asked to be released, it was hope!
We made our own Pandora’s Box and put lovely things in our box, such as love, friendship, kindness and joy. When we open our boxes, those things will be released into the world.
We enjoyed a Greek afternoon of making costumes and dancing.
We also tasted different Greek food, such as olives, feta cheese, salad, honey, raisins and had a choice of black and white grape juice.
Most children really enjoyed the taste of Greek food. Although some the food but they were not so keen!
Well done for having a taste!
