We had an exciting start to the school year by finding out interesting and mysterious facts about Greek gods and goddesses. Using the information compiled, we have written our own encyclopaedia entries on our chosen Olympian god. We then read Greek myths focusing on the famous tale of Orpheus and Eurydice. After reading the first half of the myth, we used our inference skills to make predictions of future events and write an alternative ending.
In History, we enjoyed placing key Greek events in chronological order and using a range of sources to find out more about the events. We also learnt about the origins of the Olympic Games and discovered, through group research, that the games were inspired by religion, war and entertainment.
