Paxcroft Primary School

Term 6


This term we are travelling back to Ancient Greece to find out what legacy they left behind. We will be finding out what made them such a strong civilisation and looking into some of the key Greek figures who have made an impact on our world. We will be role playing life in different city states to compare and contrast lifestyles. We will use primary sources to explore the Ancient Olympic Games before creating our own pottery depicting scenes from the Games. Through our Design Technology unit, we will be investigating Greek architecture and structures before looking in more depth at how to build a bridge using different strengthening techniques.

Whilst exploring a range of Greek Myths, our class text this term is Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan which explores some Greek myth themes throughout. The main character Percy discovers that he has god-like abilities and he accidentally vapourizes his teacher! We are going to be using this learning to help us write our own myths in English. During this term, we will be getting into the full swing of rehearsals for our production of Aladdin. We cannot wait to perform to you all!


Week 1

This week has been a very busy start to the term. Year 6 have been out on their residential trip to Mill on the Brue. We started off with a trek up Glastonbury Tor for a picnic at the top before heading to Bruton for 3 days of activities: canoeing, high ropes, assault course, zip line to name a few. We were really impressed with their behaviour throughout our time away and were proud to hear from the instructors how much they had enjoyed teaching them.

Our year 5s meanwhile had been busy with Mr George, taking part in a project based on our topic. Well done year 5 for stepping into the shoes of the year 6s whilst they were away!
