Tuesday was just brilliant. The children were greeted in Greek by Theo who taught them throughout the day. The first activity of the morning was playing an ancient Greek strategy game called Petteia followed by an information gathering activity and then trying to solve a puzzle set by Archimedes! Quite a challenge! After lunch the children were drilled like Spartan soldiers and were taught about the city states of Sparta and Athens and the differences in lifestyle in these two cities. This was followed by a battle between the boys and girls which the girls won. The afternoon was finished with children taking part in the Olympic games. Red Deer class represented Athens. The children had a wonderful day and I am sure it will stay with them for a very long time.
Please bring your reading book and diary to school with you every day. This will be changed on a Thursday afternoon along with your library book but there may be occasions when it happens on another day. PE will continue to be on Thursday afternoons so please have your full kit in school every week. PE lessons are outside at the moment and so the children need to have a pair of joggers to keep them warm. You should now be logged into Rockstars as Red Deer class.
