Literacy: Pandora's Box
After spending days on reading a variety of Myths and finding the features, the story Pandora's box has been revealed to the children as their story focus this half term.
Today in groups the children had the opportunity to act using a playscript of the myth and use talk for writing when presented with the narrative version. Each group then had to present their version of the myth.
It was certainly a lot of fun!
To kick off our new topic the Groovy Greeks, Year Four were presented with artefacts, maps and Atlases. Each group had an investigation, take a look at what they found out.
Year Four: Celebration of May Day
