Autumn 1 - It's All Greek To Me!
We will start the year with our new topic entitled ‘It’s All Greek to Me’, where we'll explore the Ancient Greeks and their culture, as well as some comparisons to modern day Greece.
To begin, we will be developing our mapping skills and learning about the key aspects of physical and human geography in Ancient Greece. We’ll then investigate and report on the similarities and differences between democracy in Ancient Greece and the UK today.
Furthermore, we will be exploring the historical importance of Ancient Greece to the Olympic and explain how the Olympics has changed over time. In DT sessions, we will investigate Ancient Greek architecture and art and use this knowledge to design and make our own Greek pots.
