What we have been up to – Autumn 1

This term year 5 have enjoyed our ‘Ancient Greek’ topic. We have looked at Greek myths in English and focused on ‘Theseus and the minotaur’, using this story we have created our own Greek myths. We have then created instructions on how to capture a mythical creature. In D&T we have created a labyrinth using cardboard to show where the Minotaur lived. We have also focused on staying safe in PSHE and were excited to be visited by the police to help us answer any questions we had regarding drugs. Throughout this term, we have focused on developing our tag rugby skills and we are excited to have a coach in next term to help improve the skills we have already learnt.



What we have been up to – Autumn 1

This term, we have loved exploring and learning about Ancient Greece in our History topic. We have loved learning about the Gods, their armies, their schools and their weaponry! We even enjoyed learning crazy facts like Spartans threw babies off cliff tops if they were sick or weak! Our favourite part of our topic relates to Art and DT where we designed and created our pots using clay! Even though it was messy (very), we loved constructing our pots. It was loads of fun!
