Greece is the Word!



For the final 7 weeks, Year 5 children will be exploring the impact of Ancient Greece on the Western world today!  Starting with a grisly murder mystery in the shadow of the Olympics, children will compare life in different Greek states and consider Greek ways of law, democracy as well as all the amazing Myths and Legends that form part of the culture.


In Literacy, children will be studying the epic poems the Iliad and Odyssey by Homer whilst a DT project will see the children inventing like the Greeks themselves!  As the warmer weather continues we will be enjoying Athletics and a leadership unit in PE worthy of any Greek warrior!
