Welcome to Year 5!
Useful information for this year
What was life like in Ancient Greece? Was it always fair?
Children will learn about the social history of Ancient Greece including Greek myths and legends, religion and everyday life in Athens. They will compare this to life in Sparta and other civilisations that they have previously learnt about and those that were in existence at the same time. They will learn about the place of Greece in Ancient and modern Europe.
Greece is the Word!
Is it fair to say that the Ancient Greeks were the most advanced civilisation of their time?
Children will apply their prior historical knowledge, and find out more about the development of learning and democracy at the time and about key Greek thinkers. They will ask and answer big questions about what we can learn from the Ancient Greeks and what legacy still lives on all these years later. They will continue to question historical sources of information and learn about key historians and archaeologists who are in this field.
