Summer Term

ANCIENT GREECE
This topic begins with exploring the Ancient Greek civilisation – there art, stories, culture and beliefs. Within this, the children discover the legacies that the Greeks have left us, in particular, the Olympics and their Mathematical Theories. The focus is then be on sport as a vehicle to bring people together. The children look at worldwide sporting events and make studies of some of the nations represented, looking at cultural, religious and ethnic diversity. Next, they learn about the Paralympics with studies of people who have overcome disability to achieve great success. Design mini-projects involve creating mascots and medals for up-coming sporting events. Science focuses on learning all about the human body and how we keep it healthy.
