Thematic Learning

Ancient Greece

During the Summer Term we will be learning all about the Ancient Greeks.  Our English lessons will link directly to this topic as we will be exploring the world of the Greek gods and goddesses through reading some of their many myths. In Humanities we will be exploring the Ancient Greek culture and finding out about everyday life in Ancient Greece.  We will be linking to our Geography topic last term by locating Greece on a map of Europe, and comparing the Greek climate and landscape with our own.  We will also be finding out how Alexander the Great came to earn his name.  We will make and decorate Greek urns in Art, listen and appraise Greek music and learn a traditional Greek dance.  By the end of term you will be experts on the Ancient Greeks and will be able to explain which of their ideas and beliefs live on in our world today!


Island Warriors

The Spring term sees the start of our Island topic. We cant wait to compare our island with Iceland, looking at geographic features, location, weather and animal habitats. 

Our class text, Song of the Dolphin Boy, helps us explore island life and the impact of humans on animal habitats.
