Term 5:

Our topic this term is 'Ancient Greece'.

During Term 5, we will be developing our understanding of Ancient Greece through historical enquiry, focussing on the question 'What was important about the Ancient Greeks?'. We will begin our topic by ordering events on a timeline within a specific period to support us in developing a chronological understanding of world history. Our historical enquiry will continue with an exploration of Greek artefacts, whereby the children will piece together a picture from the past using the historical clues. Using our knowledge of Ancient Greek myths, we will be designing and creating a variety of Greek art - including vases and mosaics. 

We will continue our topic learning in English by exploring Ancient Greek myths and legends. After identifying the key features of both myths and legends, we will be using the power of storytelling to explore our imagination and create mythical beasts for our own myths. 

In Maths, we are moving onto looking at shape. We will begin our learning of shape by making 3D shapes using modelling materials and recognising them at different orientations. We will then move on to identifying and describing the properties of 3D shapes using accurate language. We will challenge ourselves by exploring angles, identifying obtuse, acute and right angles both as a property of a shape and as a description of a turn. Towards the end of the term, we will consolidate our understanding of both fractions and time. We will continue with our ongoing learning challenge of recalling our multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times tables!

Our Science topic this term is 'Forces and Magnets'. We will be identifying forces and investigating the effects of forces on different surfaces. As a class, we will compare and group everyday materials based on whether they attract a magnet, describe magnets as having two poles and investigate whether magnets will attract or repel each other.
