Oak Spring 2
Crossing Continents – Ancient Greece
This half-term Oak class will be exploring the history of Ancient Greece.
In English we will be writing our own Ancient Greek myths. We will also be producing instructional writing inspired by our learning about greek food and recipes in DT.
We will continue to develop a deeper understanding of area and multiplication, and addition and subtraction through shape, space and measures. We will look at decimals, particularly through the concept of money.
In History, we will be learning about Ancient Greece and the impact of this time period on the world today. We will find out about important inventions and architecture from this time period. We will learn about the politics of the time period and famous figures from this important time period.
We are going to develop our DT skills in cooking and nutrition. We will be trying traditional greek foods and following ancient and modern greek recipes. We will be creating greek dishes and menus inspired by them.
We are will continue to develop our performance skills this half term. Some of us will be taking part in ukulele lessons with More Music, and some of us will be developing our singing skills and learning how to focus on beat and rhythm in performance while using Boomwhackers.
This half term we will be swimming and developing our invasion games skills through hockey in our Friday PE lesson with Mrs Dodd.
Oak Team are really looking forward to another fun and action packed half term in our class!
