Autumn 1

Picture 1 GROOVY GREEKS
This half term, we are learning about the geography of Greece as well as the Ancient Greeks. This is a great topic to start our half term as I especially enjoy teaching all the wonderful myths. We have lots of exciting activities planned and we will also be inviting parents and carers to attend a Greek day towards the end of the half term.
Below you will see all the work related to our topic which includes writing, art, design & technology, history and geography. Alternatively click the link below or visit to see what we have been up to in our other subjects.

Greek myths

We started to think about where our stories might be set. The children acted out all the different roles that might have been seen in an Ancient Greek village.

Greek Myths

We have been starting to write our own Greek Myths starring our beasts made on the first day. Today, we created a wanted poster to try to find a hero!

Holiday to Greece!

 

We explored the Greek islands by travelling on our plane across Europe. We had our wonderful pilot and co-pilot taking us on the journey whilst the attendants served us some lovely beverages. We then arrived at Athens where we had a look around. We saw ruins, ate ice cream and went to the beach. The children had a wonderful time and even wrote postcards home about their wonderful adventure.

Theseus and the Minotaur 

The first Ancient Greek myth that we have studied is Theseus and the Minotaur. After listening to the story we needed to consider if Theseus did the right thing by killing the Minotaur. As the people of Crete, we decided to put Theseus on trial and write a witness account of what we saw. As a majority, we decided that Theseus should not have killed the Minotaur as it was probably just hungry!
