Welcome to Otters! Miss Louden is excited to have some of her old Otters back and some new ones!There are 17 of us in Otters and our teacher is Miss Louden. We are all excited for the year ahead! Keep checking back on our page to see what we get up to!
This term our main topic is the Ancient Greeks. We will be studying how they lived, what they did for fun, who they worshipped and what their legacy is. Linked to this we will be studying the film and book Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.
In Science we will be investigating Electrical Circuits and Light and Shadows.
We have P.E on a Thursday where will be Greek dancing! We also have alternate weeks of Mini-Kicks.
Last week we elected our school councillors. Our school councillor is Megan Blake and our deputy councillor is Jess Robinson. Congratulations to you both. We look forward to hearing about the changes that you make to the school.
TAKE CARE HOMEWORK
What a fantastic effort that Otters put in to their Take Care project. We had such a fantastic range of homework: a brilliant quiz, Greek menu and even some sewn kebabs and pitta bread! Miss Louden can't wait to see what Otters get up to with their next Take Care project.
We have been so busy creating our Greek vases. We did two versions, we painted one and we use chalk for another one of them. We designed our own patterns to go on the vases but made sure they were similar to the Greek patterns that we had researched previously. Have a look at some of our Greek vases below.
We have done lots of work on Greek Gods, researching them and we are currently in the process of creating a fact file about the Greek Gods. In our book 'Who Let the Gods Out?' we have met Zeus and Hermes and have created character descriptions of these. We are now using these Gods to begin our research. We did some Art work around Greek Gods, where we painted a piece of paper using our colour mixing skills and then glued a God on to it to make the God POP out.
