Year 3 - Mr Caton

Spring Term

Ancient Greece: Monsters, Myths and Legends

Through our Spring Term topic, we will use a range of sources to find about the life and achievements of the Ancient Greeks.  Through our investigations, we will find out about the city states of Athens and Sparta, warfare and seamanship, everyday life, beliefs, culture, and through Greek mythology, some of the key events and individuals from this period.  We will also explore the continuing legacy of Ancient Greeks and we will explore their influence on education, language, architecture, government and the Olympic Games.  Links will be made with other ancient civilisations and societies we have studied.   We will develop our skills of historical enquiry including how evidence is used to make historical claims, and on developing our understanding of historical concepts such continuity and change, similarity and difference, and significance.
