To welcome the children back and hook them into our new topic, Great Gods and Mere Mortals, Year 3 had a Greek immersion day. As soon as the children arrived in the morning, we dressed them up as Ancient Greek citizens. We created leafy wreaths to wear and sang Greek themed songs. In the afternoon, we took the children into the hall and treated them to a culinary experience featuring a range of greek delicacies such as olives, feta cheese and tzatziki.
Usually,during the school year we take the children on educational visits related to our Topics. Sadly, recent circumstances have meant that this hasn't been possible. However we received some exciting news that the British Museum was offering virtual tours, an offer that was far too good to miss! Our virtual visit took place last Friday afternoon. The children were in awe of the building when shown by the tour guide. The tour guide explained to the children what her job as an archaeologist entailted and how we use artefacts to help us build a picture of what the past was like. The tour was interactive, with children able to ask and answer questions. One of the highlights of the sessions was the Prehistoric quiz on Kahoot. Overall, it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience which helped to broaden our understanding of Prehistoric Britain.
