Autumn Term in Sycamore

Our topic for the Autumn term was the Ancient Greeks.  Our key question was 'What have we got to thank the Greeks for?'.  Part of our classroom was turned into an Ancient Greek temple.  Fred (our class mannequin) was dressed up as Zeus - until Christmas, when he became Father Christmas!

 

Class Texts

We really enjoyed reading, discussing and acting out lots of Greek Myths.  Sycamore even wrote their own.
