Paws for thought with Murphy
I love learning about all the different time periods we can study here at Ufton Court, and this week I was lucky enough to join my pals with their residential trip learning about the Greeks
We had some fantastic objectives of the trip –
- To know how the Greeks formed society
- To develop self-esteem and appreciation of the surroundings
- To understand the Trojan Horse story
The first objective was taught by some fantastic teachers – we learnt all about the Olympics, and about trading games, which sounded really complicated, but my pals seemed to pick it up so quickly. If I were an Ancient Greek, I would like to trade in bones… or weetbix!
The second objective was a great one! Developing self-esteem is a fantastic skill to have, as it affects our behaviour and thoughts and changes how we feel about and value ourselves.
…and developing an appreciation of the surroundings … I love my home and its surroundings, mainly because there’s a lot of space for me to run around and to explore. We explored a lot of the surroundings through a fantastic invasion of Troy! Which reminds me of one of my favourite jokes…
Q: What was the most popular kids’ movie in Ancient Greece?
A: Troy Story
My favourite activity of the trip was wattling, which was so much fun! Although, I would’ve preferred if my pals threw me the sticks to fetch, rather than weaving them all together!
See you soon pals.
