Term 1

What we are learning
Our topic this term is ‘Myths, Minotaurs and Mazes!’ We will be learning about the history of the Ancient Greeks and what life was like, their achievements and their influence on the western world. We will be continuing to develop chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British history as well as developing our skills of using an atlas and reading maps.

In English, we will be studying myths and legends and creating our own using many of the mythical creatures, such as the minotaur, as characters. This will help us to develop our descriptive writing.

We shall also be learning about recount texts and creating our own.

 

 

In RE we shall be asking the question ‘How might Jewish people best show their commitment to their faith?’’ We will be exploring Judaism and making links with Christianity. The children will be continuing to develop respect and inquisitiveness through their continuing enquiry and exploration in RE. Our school value this term is generosity and we will be discussing this a lot in our worships. 

In Art, we will be developing our drawing techniques Mythical Me in the style of Henry Moore.

Our unit in Science is ‘Light’. This will involve planning our own investigations, taking measurements and recording data and using scientific evidence to support ideas.
