Groovy Greeks (Year 4)

Apparently the ancient Greeks were a rather groovy bunch. About 2,500 years ago, Greece was one of the most important places in the ancient world. The Greeks were great thinkers, warriors, writers, actors, athletes, artists, architects and politicians, and the ideas they developed way back then have influenced the way we live today.

So, who were the ancient Greeks?

What did the ancient Greeks discover?

What have the ancient Greeks done for us today?

Well, these are just some of the questions we are going to explore in our topic ‘Groovy Greeks’. Let’s go back in time to discover how the ancient Greeks changed the world and what they really did do for us. Just take a moment to look below to discover what our learning adventure will entail…

 

We are scientists

Grab your magnifying glass as we take a close look at creatures great and small, and explore how we can group and classify them based on their similarities and differences. Let’s journey from our mouths to our stomachs as we look at the human digestive system and find out just what happens to the food we eat (the ancient Greek tummies worked in just the same way as ours, you know!).

 

We are artists

Be prepared to turn our classrooms into ancient Greek art galleries as we recreate a range of ancient Greek artefacts. Art tools at the ready! Be inspired by the Greeks and create your own Greek pot designs, form a sculpture out of soap and be stage ready with your comedy or tragedy theatre masks.
