Activities for the week beginning 11-1-21


This week we will be finding out about slavery in Ancient Greece.


Day 1 - Please have a look at this website and read the report on slavery in Ancient Greece, then complete the quiz at the bottom of the page.




Day 2 - glossaries.  Lots of non-chronological reports have glossaries where the meanings of any unknown words are explained.  Look again at the Ducksters website on slavery in Ancient Greece and find at least six words that many people might not know the meaning of.  Make a glossary for the text by explaining in your own words what these words mean.


Day 3 - Can you make up your own quiz about slavery in Ancient Greece?  You could include multiple choice answers, true or false questions, just like the one you tried on Monday.  You could also have a look at this website to find out some more about this topic.




Day 4 - note taking.  Look again at the two websites we have studied this week and use them to make notes about the topic of slavery in Ancient Greece.  Remember, when you write notes, you just need to jot down the most important information, and you don't need to write in full sentences.


Day 5 non-chronological report.  You should by now be quite an expert on slavery in Ancient Greece.  We would like you to have a first attempt at writing a non-chronological report about this subject, using your knowledge.  You will also need to think back to last week and all the things we noticed about what a non-chronological report needs - like separate paragraphs, subheadings and so on.  


Topic for week beginning 11-01-21


This week in English we have been learning about what life was like in Ancient Greece.  It is very different there now!  See what you can find out about modern Greece.  Where is it in the world?  What is the climate like there?  What about the physical features - does it have mountains, rivers, coastline?  What kind of animals and plants are there?  What about the people - what kinds of jobs do they do and what food do they eat?  How is it different or similar to our country?  Make an information leaflet about what you have found out.  You can include pictures, maps and anything else that you find interesting.


Spelling Bees - remember to practise your spellings regularly.  Here is the new list for the first half of the spring term.
