Year 3 – Squirrels

Our topic this half term is the Greeks. We will be learning about Ancient Greek warfare, studying the differences between Athens and Sparta and finding out about the beliefs of the Ancient Greeks. We will also be looking at how daily life was different for these people and assessing the impact of the Ancient Greek civilisation on the modern world.

Our English work this half term will be linked to our topic of the Greeks. The children will be studying Aesop’s fables and using what they learn from these to create their own fables.

They will also be looking at some of the stories from Greek mythology and using ideas from these to create their own myths.

There will also be an opportunity for the children to take part in a debate against Otter class as if they are part of a Greek senate.
