Monday 22nd February

Today, we're going to read Chapter 22 of The Boy at the Back of the Class: World Wide Whispers. In case you've forgotten what had just happened in the book at the end of last term, here are some key words to remind you- Gates, refugees, family, Buckingham Palace, news. 

We’re going to start Literacy this term learning about Greek myths. Although they lived in a very advanced society, the Ancient Greeks had limited scientific understanding. To explain the origins of the world and life around them, they told stories called myths. These myths also told the lives and adventures of famous Greek people and the Greek Gods and Goddesses. Today, we're going to start to learn the myth of Odysseus. It comes from a famous poem called The Odyssey which was written sometime around 800BC and it starts at the end of a very long war called the Trojan War. 
Below, you'll find a PDF called Odysseus with the start of the myth. Myths were traditionally passed through spoken word so you can find a video of me telling you the myth here too

Today, we'll be learning the start of the myth so we can retell it and we'll create a story map to help us. There's a PDF below called Story Map where you can see the start of my story map and to remind you what you need to use for a story map. For each paragraph, draw a picture or a couple of brief pictures which summarise what has happened and add key words or phrases to help you remember the most important parts. 

Once you're done, practise using your story map to retell the start of the myth of Odysseus. 

It's time to start learning a new topic in maths: measure. We'll be starting by recapping metric measures. Watch the video here and then complete the sheet below or the pages in your White Rose Maths book. Remember, if you're struggling, try and do at least the first page of the sheet. You can also find the answer sheet below to mark once you're finished. If you'd like to challenge yourself, there's a challenge sheet below. When you're finished, check your work with the answer sheet below.
We're going to have our first lesson about Ancient Greece today. Watch the video here to start thinking about Ancient Greece and to see how to do today's two activities.
