IPC - The Great, the Bold and the Brave

We will be learning about life, culture and the political structure in ancient Greece and ancient Rome. We will also be learning about the religious beliefs that the Romans and Greeks held and the many gods that they believed in. Greek mythology will be an area of focus and will be used to inspire our creative writing.



Our Power of Reading book for this half term is The Journey ​by Francesca Sanna, which shows the story of a family of refugees fleeing a conflict in their home country. We will use the book as a jumping off point for writing formal, persuasive letters and our own refugee stories.
