Our current topic is Ancient Greece. We will be exploring everyday life, warfare and democracy. During this Spring term, the children will begin looking at Greek Myths. They will be given the opportunity to read a variety of different Greek myths, the children will then learn a Greek myth off-by-heart before writing their own Greek myth! We will also look at Greek geography in the modern day exploring the climate, physical features and tourism.

Our Autumn term topic was the stone age. We explored the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age periods. We looked at what made these periods in history special exploring the discoveries and inventions. We looked at what cave men were really like and discovered what it would have been like to live in those times. We examined the types of homes people used to live in, what they ate and how they farmed. We also learned why historical artefacts were important and how we can use them to help us discover information about the past.

How you can help :)
Please support your children's learning by listening to them read every evening. They also need to be practising their spellings every evening (Monday - Thursday), and practising their times tables often. Times tables are tested every Friday, spellings are tested every Thursday, and planners are checked daily to ensure children are reading.
