Year five in Red Kites had a wonderful week learning about the Ancient Greeks. They made chitons, Greek sandals, mosaics and a sistrum.

We all enjoyed learning about light in science which included refraction, spectrums, shadows, colour wheels and a visit from Dr. Partner who explained how our eyes work!
