Groundbreaking Greeks

This Spring our topic investigates the ancient Greeks, charting changes and developments over six periods of history, focusing on the city state of Athens in the Classical age and exploring the lasting legacy of ancient Greece. 

After half-term our topic is the Blue Abyss, a geography topic, learning about the physical features and human uses of the ocean, developing knowledge of ocean layers, sea exploration, food chains and how pollution affects ocean habitats.

Subjects

Literacy - We are writing detailed timelines for ancient Greece, a biography of David Attenborough and creating narrative stories about creatures of the ocean. 

Science, Computing and D&T - In the topic Scream Machine, we look at mechanisms and forces in relation to roller-coasters and theme park rides, designing, modelling and programming our own rides.  

Geography - We will be focusing on position and direction through map reading using compasses and six figure grid references. 

RE - We are studying the Easter story, from the activities in Holy Week, and Lailat al Miraj, which celebrates the story of Muhammad's Night Journey.
