This week, in Seal Class, we have embarked on an exciting learning journey through the fascinating Ancient Greeks. In history, we delved into the differences between the two powerful city-states of Sparta and Athens. We discovered that Sparta was a militaristic society that placed great importance on toughness and discipline, while Athens was a democratic state that valued education and art.

In geography, we explored the beautiful North East region of England and learned about its diverse location. We got to know about the different cities and landmarks in the region, as well as how they interacted with each other. This helped us understand how the region is influenced by various factors, such as climate and trade, and how that shapes the lives of people who live there.

In maths, we completed our understanding of fractions and decimals. We learnt about how decimals and fractions are related, and how to convert fractions to decimals and vice versa. We also practised ordering decimals and fractions, adding and subtracting them, and solving problems that involve decimals and fractions.

In English, we were introduced to William Shakespeare's famous play, A Midsummer Night's Dream. We explored the different characters in the play, including the mischievous Puck, the quarrelsome lovers Hermia and Demetrius, and the fairy queen Titania. We also analysed the basic plot outline, which revolves around four young lovers who are manipulated by fairies into falling in and out of love with each other.
