This term the children of Year 3 travelled back to Ancient Greece for a day. The day started with the children arriving in their beautiful costumes. Then they all joined Dionesius in the Hall to learn about Ancient Greece through artifacts and the retelling of a Greek Myth.
After break, they were split into house groups and completed a carousel of activities up until break. The children loved the activities especially making pitta bread with the parent helpers.
Next the children had a delicious Greek themed lunch of a selection of foods including pitta bread, juice, grapes, olives and hummus.
Finally, the classes competed in a mini Olympic Games between Athens and Sparta. All the children had a brilliant day.
Danger, there are Dinosaurs at TGMS!
On Thursday 21st September, Year 3 discovered dinosaurs in their school hall. Luckily, they weren't real so they could feel them and study them closely. In the morning, the children learnt all about dinosaurs,rocks and fossils by completing a fun quiz which encouraged them to search and investigate the exhibits to discover the answers. The hall was buzzing with excitement.
In the afternoon the children learnt about how fossils are made. Then they studied real fossils and drew them in great detail. The children will be using these excellent drawings next week when they design their own fossil to make out of air dry clay. It was a lovely day, the children and staff really enjoyed it. Maybe we have some future budding archaeologists in Year 3, you never know?
