Our Autumn Term topic is the Ancient Greeks. We will be learning about the geography of Greece and researching the impact of ancient Greek society on our lives today . Throughout this topic, we will be using the atlas and the computer to help aid our knowledge and understanding.
Our class text for this term is The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo. Using this text, we will be completing writing tasks in a range of genres.
