Christ The King RC Primary School - To Work Is To Pray

Y5

Wonder, Believe, Shine & Achieve - Welcome!

This term, we are focussing on the Classical Golden Age of Ancient Greece (500BC to 323BC) which marked the height of Ancient Greek civilisation and power. We will investigate the city states of Athens and Sparta, warfare and seamanship, everyday life, beliefs, culture, and through Greek mythology, some of the key events and individuals from this period. We will also consider the continuing legacy of Ancient Greece and its influence.

Class readers for this term are:

The Groovy Greeks (Horrible Histories) by Terry Deary

Greek Myths by Marcia Williams

 

In Tinkology, we will solve the problem of how to fire missiles using catapults.

Through art, the children will create their own masks to resemble Medusa.

Our mission statements of 'wonder', 'believe, 'shine' and 'achieve' will be reflected in our RE topics of Ourselves, Life Choices and Hope.
