The Groovy Greeks

Our first topic in the Autumn term is ‘Groovy Greeks’ where we will find out about life in

Ancient Greece. This topic began with a very exciting Ancient Greek murder mystery to solve

– there were a lot of tricky clues to solve!

In History 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 and Music. In computing we will be learning how to use Inkscape to explore geometric art, taking inspiration from Escher and Riley. DT will involve celebrating Greek Food. We will be researching, taste testing and then making our very own Greek food; wish us luck. It will all be a lot of fun!
