Welcome to Year 3
Myths and Legends
Throughout this Spring term, we shall be exploring and learning all about a range of Myths and Legends from around the World, with a particular emphasis on those originating in Ancient Greece.
During our English lessons, we will have the opportunity to read a wide variety of myths and legends from many different sources, analysing their similarities and differences, enabling us to write our own myths and legends inspired by our favourite tales. Myths and Legends will inform our cross-curricular maths work as we discover and learn all about many of the mythical creatures and places, handling this information and data as required.
Furthermore, our History and Geography this term will focus on life in Ancient Greece, considering what inspired the Greeks to write such exciting myths and comparing life in the past to life today.
Towards the end of term, we shall be visited by a polymer clay artist, who shall work with us to create our own mythical creatures using new techniques before these form part of our stop-motion animation videos. This promises to be an exciting topic with lots of opportunities to be inspired, engaged and use our imaginations.
