Welcome to the Upper Band

Welcome to Term 3!


Please find below the general overview of this term for Upper Band. This document will provide you with an idea of what your child will be learning throughout this term. 

At the beginning of Week 2, on Monday 10th January, Upper Band will be having a Greek Day to immerse them in to our topic. 

The children will be taking part in 5 different activities based around the following themes: The Olympics, Greek food, the Greek alphabet, making a Greek Postcard and Greek theatre.
If possible, we would like them to bring in:
  • A sheet that can be transformed into a toga which they will then wear for the rest of the day.
  • Any Greek food for their class's food tasting session. Here are some suggestions: Greek yoghurt, honey, green and black olives, feta cheese, hummus, tzatziki, taramasalata, pitta breads, vegetable sticks... the list is endless!
  • Please make sure that the items are nut free.
