This week Sapphire Class have been looking at Gladiators as part of our Romans topic. We have learnt lots of facts about gladiators and even dressed up as the different types of gladiators.

Did you know that he name gladiator comes from the name of their weapon the gladius or short sword.

In Literacy we have been looking at the book Gladiator by Alan Gibbons. We have read the book and next week we are going to write our own gladiator time-travel story. Keep an eye on our blog to read some of our finished stories!

Greek Pots Update

Today we continued to create our pots in the style of a Greek vase.

First, we had to paint our pots orange like the Ancient Greeks did.

Then, we had to sketch our designs, some of us chose to tell the story the myths we created and some of us decided to tell the story of a Greek myth on our vases.

We now need to leave the paint to dry and tomorrow we will be able to paint our designs onto our pots.
