GROOVY GREEKS 

This half term the children will continue looking at the Ancient Greeks. We will be looking closely at the Olympics now and then. We will also be looking at different Greek myths. We will be looking at: The 12 tasks of Heracles and Icarus and Daedalus. We will be having the chance to write our own myth after designing and collaging our own beasts and heroes. 

Year 3 will also have the opportunity to meet a real life Olympic Bronze medalist from Leeds! 

Year 3 will be doing lots of art projects this half term. They will be drawing their own Greek settlement, designing and making a Greek pot and a Greek Headdress. 

 

By the end of the half term the children will be inviting their families into school to enjoy our Greek experience day. The families and children will have the chance to enjoy Greek food, listen to Greek music and show off their amazing work! Hope you can make it!
