Autumn Term 2017
Our first topic in the Autumn term is ‘Groovy Greeks’ where we will find out about life in
Ancient Greece. This topic will begin with a very exciting Ancient Greek murder mystery to solve!
Children will look at everyday life; they will research who the gods were that the Greeks used to worship, Greek architecture, the theatre and the Arts, and the Olympics. We will be closely linking this topic to our lessons in English, DT, Computing and Music. DT will involve designing and sewing puppets based on famous Ancient Greek gods and mythical characters. We will be learning a number of different stitches some of which are very hard. It will all be a lot of fun!
After half term, we will focus on finding out about the earth, sun and moon in our science based topic ‘To infinity and beyond!’ Here, we will learn about our solar system and the conditions on other planets. We will rise to the challenge of designing and making our very own battery powered lunar buggies in DT. We are also excited for our school trip.
