This autumn a lot of our learning will be focused on Ancient Greece.  This was a great period in history and on our journey we will explore their amazing legacy which makes them still important our lives today such as democracy. Our map skills will develop as we compare how Modern and Ancient Greece have evolved and why city states held such an importance, especially the relationship between Athens and Sparta and how families were raised. Finally, we will know that the Ancient Greeks worshipped their Gods and how they used them as guides in their lives.
