Spring Term - Swept Away
This term, we are working on an exciting topic called 'Swept Away'. This topic is based around Michael Morpurgo's excellent book 'Kensuke's Kingdom', and we will be learning lots of geography skills and knowledge. Here is the medium term plans to explain what we will be learning in each subject, and an accompanying video where I will talk you through the plan.
We have been learning about the Ancient Greeks and the lasting impact their civilisation has on our world today.
Our topic started with a visit from Lauren, an archeologist who specialises in the Ancient Greeks, and she helped us to learn about the key city states of Athens and Sparta, the warriors of each state, the Olympic games and some of the strategy games which were played around 2000 years ago.
In English, we have been learning about the myths and legends from Ancient Greece, studying Anthony Horowitz's version of the texts. We have learnt about Perseus' battle against the gruesome Medusa, and Theseus' triumph against the terrifying Minotaur.
In Art, we have studied the ceramics and vessels of Ancient Greece, and compared them to the works of contemporary British artist Grayson Perry.
