Cyprus and Ithaca Blog: Week Beginning: 20.11 17  

Welcome back to Cyprus and Ithaca class,

We have had a fantastic time in Hooke Court and the children had a brilliant time participating in a variety of activities such as:

  • Roman Cooking
  • Marching
  • Visiting Roman Museums
  • Jewellery Making etc.

This week we have been focusing on Bar Charts and how to read and interpret data. We have also learned how to make a Tally Chart by conducting our own independent research and transferring that data onto a Bar Chart.   

In Literacy we have been learning about Myths and Legends and have studied a variety of different texts such as Pandora’s Box and Demeter and her daughter Persephone along with some fascinating legends. We have also learnt about the features of myths and legends and some of their differences.

In topic we have been learning about Emperor Hadrian and the infamous wall that he built!!!

The homework challenge for this week is: Write a story about the Loch Ness Monster. Your writing must be structured in a story format and include:

  • Beginning, Middle and the End
  • Plot
  • Hero/Villain
  • Mystical creatures
  • Choose a Setting for example (A land far away, clouds, kingdom, heavens, earth, ancient cities etc.)

Have an energising weekend !!!
