AUTUMN (1) September 2019

This half term we are journeying to a country full of history, one of the longest coastlines in the world and superb gyros and souvlaki! Can you guess where we are going? That’s right we are going to Ancient Greece. Brush up on your history because the
children will come to you looking for different facts to bring to class! This half term we will be looking at the history of Greece and finding out all about their long fascinating history and how they lived and worked. Our work in science will focus upon the tricky subject of human digestion, caring for our teeth, before moving onto the states of matter. I know that Mrs Wilde has a brilliantly icky lesson planned, so stay tuned! In English we are looking at the myths and legends of Greece, and will be using the legend of Medusa and Perseus to craft our own tales of vanquishing terrifying beasts!
In PE we have team theme coaches in testing our skills on Wednesdays.
