We have been exploring how Passover is celebrated in Judaism. The class had to do their best detective work to figure out what a mysterious object was and how it may be used. They identified the object as a plate used for serving different foods. Then, they found out that the plate is used during Passover and that it is used to serve a variety of foods that symbolises parts of the story Exodus. For example: meat symbolises offerings made to God while herbs and lettuce (dipped in salt water) symbolise the tears of the slaves who built the Pyramids for the Egyptian Pharaoh.
A Word in Your Ear by Tony Ross. We have explored some short horror stories by looking at: how the author builds suspense, trying to predict what could happen next, thinking about how the characters feel at certain points in their story and even hot seating the characters to find out a bit more about them.
Ancient Greek Day!
Happy Harvest from Class 3!
In Class 3 we thoroughly enjoyed dressing up as insects for Eco Day!
Class 3 had a fantastic afternoon at forest school. We have started making our Greek wax tablets for our Ancient Greek day. After sawing some wood, we went outside for a quiz about insects and to explore what we could create out of materials in the forest school area. We we very happy to see blue skies, as it always seems to rain for our forest school days!
Class 3 discussed the importance of warming up correctly before taking part in sports. They spent the rest of the PE lesson creating their own warm ups for our future games of netball.
