Topic

Week beginning 8th June 2020

Over the past two weeks, you have been learning about Greece, Ancient Greek Myths and Greek Gods that featured in these myths. This week, we will look deeper into the Ancient Greek religion, their practices and ways of worshiping the Greek Gods. Both activities for this week are linked to this theme and you will use your knowledge from the first activity on Wednesday to help you with your DT project on Friday. 

Wednesday

For Wednesday's activity, please click the link below to read information about worship, temples and Sacred Sites in Ancient Greece. Then complete the quiz to see how much you have learnt and remember! 

Friday

For today's activity, please click the link and read the information on BBC Bitesize about Ancient Greek Temples. What were temples used for? What was the most famous temple in Greece and where is it located? Can you describe what a Greek temple looks like?

 

Once you have read the information we would like you to create a 3D model of the most famous temple in Greece. Use some old packaging, card and paper to make the temple - reduce, reuse and recycle! Watch the video clip to help you make and test the columns or pillars for the temple out of paper - which shape is best and why? Once you are finished, you could even try painting your temple and add some detailed designs to it!

 

Get creative and have fun!

Friday - making and testing the strength of card paper pillars

Did you know that the same sized piece of card paper can hold different amounts of weight based on how it's shaped? What shape did the Ancient Greeks use for their temples and why?

Week Beginning 1st June

Wednesday - History: Ancient Greece | Educational Videos for Kids

Watch this video with some more information about Greece. What new facts have you learnt about Greece? Can you name any of the Greek Gods that appear in the video?

Wednesday - History: Ancient Greek Mythology Stories - Icarus and Daedalus

Before the half term, you were set a comprehension to read based on the Story of Icarus and the Labyrinth. Watch this video and compare it to the story you read. How is it similar or different? Which version do you prefer and why?

Wednesday - History: Ancient Greek Mythology Stories - Theseus and the Minotaur

Earlier this year, we read the story of Theseus and the Minotaur. Tell a family member what you remember about the Myth and then watch this version. Think about how the stories were similar or different and then give an explanation for which version you prefer.

What is similar and different about the two Myths you have read and just watched? Think about what is key in Greek Myths and then create your own Myth using a Greek God of your choice. Try to make your writing as creative as you can using your imagination and have fun with it!

Underneath the video, there are a variety of page borders with lines that you can use to write your Greek Myth or you can get a little creative by making your paper look ancient.

Friday - Topic Art: Greek God Drawing - How to Draw the Human Body (for kids)

Now you have written your own Greek Myth, we would like you to draw a picture of the God featured in your Myth. The God can be on its own or in action with another creature from your Greek Myth.

Watch the video before you begin to learn information about how to draw and sketch the outline of a human body. It will help you get the body proportions correct!
