When is a horse not a horse?

…. when it’s a great big trick to win a war! This week, we really enjoyed learning more about the Siege of Troy: we heard different versions of the story, did some group drama for key points, story pathed it and started to learn who the key figures were using our Knowledge Organiser. Maybe you could set a question for everyone to answer. I’ll start you off…

Who was Helen’s husband and what was his brother called?

After some super scores on our Learn Its challenges yesterday, we’re moving on to the 8 times table. Our Learn Its for next week will be

3 x 8 = 24

5 x 8 = 40

7 x 8 = 56

Here’s a link for a times table game. Set it to 8 times tables. Practise, practise, practise and prepare yourself to wear the crown!! 👑
