Groovy Greeks


As part of our ‘Groovy Greeks’ project, we have read one of the most famous Ancient Greek myths – the story of Icarus and Daedalus. To help us learn the story by memory, we stepped it out in groups by using a step to represent the end of a sentence. 


We have also freeze-framed the main events of the story. To complete this activity, we had to follow the S2S which was :

  • Facial expressions 
  • Different levels 
  • The event needs to be clear 
  • Body language 
  • No giggling 

In Science, we have learnt about the different parts of the flower and their functions. We are able to label and explain the purpose of the:

  • Stigma
  • Style
  • Ovary
  • Petal
  • Anther
  • Sepal
  • Roots


We have also looked at the different steps of pollination for flowering plants and created a life cycle of a plant.
