Year 3

Summer 1 Home Learning

Welcome to our Year Three Summer 1 newsletter.

Our topic for this term is all about Ancient Greece!

As historians, we will be learning about:

Who were the Ancient Greeks?
What was life like for the Ancient Greeks?
How the ancient Greeks have influenced our lives today.


In English, we will be basing our work for the first part of the half term on our growing knowledge of the Ancient Greeks. We will write a report containing lots of facts and using subheadings to share our knowledge with our families. 

We will also be writing a retell of the magnificent Greek myth, Theseus and the minotaur! We will do lots of drama and oracy work to help us be creative with our ideas. 


In maths, we will be looking at time and measure. 

You can practice these two topics here:

Maths Frame - Time Games 

Top Marks - Measuring in cm

Let’s get Creative!

In art, we will be designing and making our own Greek pottery! We will be looking at ancient Greek pottery that has been found by archaeologists. This will inspire our creations.
