Within this theme, we will be exploring the life and achievements of the ancient Greeks We will be specifically looking at their huge influence of The Greeks on today's society.

In English, we will be reading and responding to a range of texts including Greek myths. We will also be thinking about what life was like for The Greeks and how we can find out about their lives through artefacts. In Geography, we will be looking at the climate and terrain of Grrece and how this affected the country in terms of trade,politics, farming and war. Where possible lessons will be cross-curricular which means that units of English, History, Geography, Art and Design will be linked together to create a more broad experience.

We are continuing with our writing project- IPEELL,which aims to accelerate progress in writing for all, linking writing units to our Greek theme where possible.

See the Curriculum Overview plan-Spring 2019 below for more details of our learning this term.
