Yr 6 Mrs Dudley
Our topic for summer 2 is, ‘The Ancient Greeks and their Legacies: Gods and Mortals’.
I am really excited to be sharing this topic with you, as it is one of my favourites. We are going to be looking at the Olympian gods, what everyday life in Ancient Greece was like and some of the legacies they left behind that still have an influence on our lives today.
We will be covering a range of subjects within this topic. As you can imagine, history will be a strong focal point for this unit; however, we will also locate Greece using maps in geography and have the chance to build in some creative art and music tasks too.
We will be reading the book, ‘Who Let the Gods Out?’ by Maz Evans, which will be used in both literacy and guided reading. As well as reading this book, we will be looking into the many myths and legends surrounding the Greek gods.
In addition to this, we will look at some work that will help us prepare for our transition to secondary school.
This half term will continue to be a little different with some of you returning to school while others are staying home; however, I will still be there to support all of you with your work and answer any of your questions. The work will continue to be uploaded on Seesaw and I look forward to seeing what you have been up to. Mr Ball and Mrs Henry will also continue to set your P.E. and outdoor learning tasks and write messages regarding them.
I hope you all stay nice and safe. Remember you can always email me or message me on Seesaw if you have any questions or worries.
