Gods and Mortals

Y3 Newsletter (Spr 1) Gods and Mortals >

Year 3 have really enjoyed our Topic ‘Gods and Mortals’, learning about the Ancient Greeks. Our topic started memorably with a visit by Zeus who introduced all of the Gods and Goddesses. Then we read lots of Greek Myths, such as Icarus, Ariadne the Spinner and Orpheus and Eurydice.

In English, we read the myth of the Trojan Horse and wrote fantastic stories retelling the tale and in Topic, we learnt about the dark ages and golden ages of Ancient Greece. Then we read Theseus and the Minotaur and wrote a letter to King Aegeus persuading him to send / not send the children!

In RE we learnt about the Holy Trinity and examined many versions of ‘Baptism of Christ’ paintings across history. We finished the half term creating our water colour ‘Baptism of Christ’ paintings in the style of Daniel Bonnell.
