It's All Greek to Me

Myths and Legends

In our English lessons we will be focusing on writing Greek myths and Legends. This will lead to an opportunity for them to show their new skills by writing an independent Greek myth before the end of term.

As part of this topic, we will be exploring democracy in the origins of ancient Greece. They will learn about the Greek culture, art, and compare different ways of life.

We will be creating a healthy Greek meal as part of our Design and Technology project and will be putting our research and knowledge to the test by designing and creating our own Greek pottery.
