This half term we are travelling back thousands of years to the time of the

Ancient Greeks.

Image result for ancient greeceWe will learn about the different Greek gods and goddesses and try to decide which were the most important. 

  • We will look at the city states of Athens and Sparta and think about where we would rather have lived!
  • Greek vases and their designs are iconic images that everyone recognises.
  • In Art, we will be designing and making our own greek pottery.

 

In English we will be reading the Greek myth, Theseus and the Minotaur.

Our main writing objective is to write our own myths but we will also write descriptions of mythical beasts, diary entries as characters of Theseus and Ariadne, and newspaper reports of the events in the story.

 In our Maths lessons we will start by investigating Roman Numerals and then move on to factors, square and cube numbers and multiplication and division problems. In our fractions work, we will learn how to mulitiply fractions and revise fraction/decimal/percentage equivalents. We will finish the half term by converting between metric and imperial measurements and invesitating 3d shapes.

 

In Science our topic is Earth and Space. 

 

In RE we will first look at how Christians understand heaven before looking in detail at some parables from the Bible to understand what the Kingdom of Heaven means in Christianity.

In our French lessons we will continue to learn how to desribe our home town.

This half term we will also continue with our Artsaward explore booklets.

On Mondays we have Chess with Mr Glover.

On Wednesdays we have PE with Miss Terri and Music with Mr Partington.
