Welcome to our Advent term!

General Class information

Mrs Broomhead, Mrs Sadikot, Mrs Ali and Mrs Sheikh.

Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Wednesdays.

Please come to school in full P.E. kit on those days.

Our History topic for this half term is: The Ancient Greeks

We will be learning about Greek life and achievements and their influence on the western world.

This unit builds on chronologically from the study of Ancient Egypt. It also elaborates on substantive concepts of power and democracy which were first developed in Year One in ‘Kings and Queens’ and ‘Parliament and Prime Ministers’, deepening children’s understanding. Children learn how Greeks from different city states lived, the Gods they worshipped and the stories they told of monsters, heroes, challenges and bravery. It equips them with an understanding of what a legacy is; how there are things in our lives, such as how we vote, words we speak, sports we participate in, stories we tell, that remain from an earlier time.
