You can find all this learning below.
Here are some examples of the learning from this week.
We designed mythical creatures and wrote descriptions about them. We tried to use real-life creatures that commonly made up parts of Greek mythical creatures, like; lions, eagles, goats and snakes. We also tried to use features that were common, like; wings, multiple heads and tails.
We also designed business cards to represent each of the Greek Gods we researched.
Picture 1 is Daisy's mythical creature called the 'Mergoake'.
Picture 2 is Izzy's mythical creature.
Picture 3 is Lara's mythical creature the 'Pstarifidi'.
Picture 4 is Ryan's business card for the Greek God Poseidon.

We have been discussing equality and found out, and wrote about, Rosa Parks for a couple of lessons. Before returning to our learning about Ancient Greece.

Here is some of the learning Daymer Bay class have been doing while staying safe at home.
The top photo is some artwork Daisy has done. The colours are amazing and there is a clear message about life at the moment! She has submitted it, to hopefully have it entered in Grayson Perry’s art exhibition - how exciting!
The second photo is a mini steam engine Oliver built (with some help from his dad). It was a birthday present he received during his lockdown birthday. Great skills Ollie!
The third photo is a banner Michael made (with his sister) as a thank you to the NHS. He and his family have also been out clapping every Thursday to thank everyone who is still working so hard to help our community at the moment.
The final photo is my living room window displaying the bunting I made to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
