a Pathway to Success

Summer Term


This topic builds on children’s knowledge of Europe and ancient civilisations already studied earlier in the juniors and in this academic year.

Year 5 will delve back in time to one of the most fascinating civilizations in history as they explore Ancient Greece and its many wonders. Through this topic, our class will discover the people, the inventions, the art, the technology and the mythology of the Ancient Greeks.

They will discover many of the Greek’s earliest achievements through the analysis of historical sources and how these have influenced the western world. This topic will span decades, processing the change and comparing the diversity of societies between ancient and modern Greece.

In Art and Design, linked to their study of the early Olympic Games, children study how movement is shown in sculpture through focussing on the Discus Thrower by Myron which leads to their own work in clay depicting a human figure showing movement.
