We learnt that the Greeks made heads of gods called busts. They made them by chipping stone it would have taken a really long time.  We made busts out of clay.  We used plastic cutting tools and our hands to shape the clay.

Here are some of our busts.

We have been learning about making fiction stories and this story is called Zeus gets mad! We made up our stories but it had to be called Zeus gets mad !

First we planed our story, next  we drafted it, then edited it, after that we wrote our story on a smart piece of paper. Before we wrote it for real we read our draft to gather some more ideas. When we finished our story we checked our work so it was our best.
