Yesterday, we learnt about democracy in Ancient Greece. We acted out being part of the Eccelsia which was the assembly of Athenian men who met together to vote on laws. We learnt if they wanted to speak,they had to stand on a stone called a Pnyx. When the Athenians voted they used white pebbles to say yes and black pebbles to say no. We used white and blue counters to represent voting. We also discussed what system of democracy we have in the U.K and how this compares to the system in Ancient Greece.

We had fun taking part at a sports festival this week.

Year 4 buddies up with Year 2 during 'Buddy Reading'.

Homework

Spellings : Following our spelling scheme, new spellings will be given out on Monday at the beginning of each new unit. The children will have two weeks to learn their spellings and they will be tested at the end of the second week (these will be based on patterns covered in our phonics/spelling lessons).

Homework activities : Given out on Fridays, for handing in by the following Wednesday.

Reading : It is important that a range of texts are read at home and try to do this every day. Whilst reading with your child, I would encourage you to draw attention to: punctuation, grammar, sentence structures, vocabulary choices and the organisation of writing (i.e. paragraphing and layout).
