This term, Form 3 have been learning about Ancient Greece and have enjoyed exploring the topic across a number of their lessons. In history, they have learned about the Greek states of Athens and Sparta, warfare in ancient Greece and family life as part of their studies about Ancient Greece. Watch a video from Form 3's trip to the British Museum to see their wonderful Ancient Egyptian artefacts and see some of the pupils' work.

Writers' Corner: Pre-Prep Learn About Story Writing
 
Chess Report:
Norfolk House vs Lochinver House

Pre-Prep have been discussing story language, including ways to begin and end a story. They have also looked at characters and setting and the descriptive vocabulary which can be used to describe these. The children were given a picture of a dragon with a castle in the background as stimulus and asked to create their own fantasy story. Read some examples of their writing.
 

"We hosted a chess match against Lochinver House on Wednesday 13 November. It's always a pleasure for me to spend time with the children. They were extremely well-behaved, helpful and polite; very good hosts, I'd say."
