Autumn Term- Discover Project


Should everyone in society have an equal voice?


During the Autumn term, children  in Year 5 will be asked the Big Question; 'Should everyone in society have an equal Voice?' 


They will be learning about the Ancient Greeks during this History based project. The Ancient Greeks introduced democracy, however women, slaves and foreigners weren't allowed to vote in any decision making. We'll discuss what democracy is, how it works today and whether we feel the Greeks did have a democracy or not. They will discuss terms such as equality and fairness.


As well as this, the children will learn about Greek theatre, myths and legends. We will learn to be Historians by asking questions and looking at artefacts and replicas. We will study time lines and use Geography skills to determine exactly where Greece is. We will learn about Greek Gods and Goddesses, and also read the book 'Who Let the Gods out?' (It's really funny)


In Autumn Term 2, Year 5 will learn all about the Ancient Greek Olympics, comparing the games then to the modern Olympics. We will also learn about the Spartan army and Greek fashion. 


Finally, children will be asked to show off their History skills by researching information and artefacts on a certain aspect of Greek History. Will they be able to put their new learnt skills to practice independently?


We hope you enjoy the pictures we post, the project placemat created and all the learning we do in class. We look forward to seeing your creative project homework too!
