It's all Greek to me!
Today in Year 3 we launched our new topic for the Spring Term by having a Greek food tasting day. The children had the opportunity to taste different foods, design their own Greek menus and have a go at putting together Greek inspired pittas and wraps.
“I learnt how Greek food tastes.”- Eliza
“I learnt that the ABC in Greek is different than in English. I liked all the foods we tested because now I know what foods I like and don’t like.”- Riley
“I learnt how to design a Greek menu from trying different foods.”- Isabelle
“I enjoyed when we found what language they speak in Greece.”- Evelyn
“I really liked when we go to choose our own food to put in our sandwich.”- Natalya
“I really enjoyed creating the menu because we go to be creative!”- Lauren
“I liked adding the money because I know how to add and I love maths!”-Ayan
“I liked creating the shopping list because I could see how much it cost.”-Gracie
We hope you are well rested after the Christmas break and ready for the new term. Thank you for all the lovely cards and gifts we received. We hope you are all rested and we would like to wish you all a Happy New Year.
We hope the following information, on this page, helps both you and your child. School newsletters will also be a source of information, so look out for these in your child’s bag. The ‘school app’ is used to send out reminders and the school website is a valuable tool to keep up-to-date with developments.
Please remember that we are here to help: when we know about concerns we can respond. Mrs Laws will be teaching in 3LD on Mondays and Tuesdays and Mrs Denyer on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Miss Barber is the intervention teacher for Year 3.
We are excited about the year ahead and getting to know your children. The aim of the next few weeks is to settle the children into the new routines and to ensure that they are happy and comfortable in their new surroundings. We believe that if children are happy, they will be able to achieve their full potential. We hope the following information helps both you and your child. School newsletters will also be a source of information, so look out for these in your child’s bag.
