Term 2's Learning

Gods and Mortals!

 

Our learning this term:

 

From nothingness came chaos, from chaos came air and water; from air and water came life. Then raising majestically from the darkness came Gaia, Mother Earth, a beacon of warmth and light.

Discover a fantastical world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes. Poseidon, Apollo, Artemis and Zeus reign almighty from Mount Olympus, watching mere mortals on dusty Athenian streets.

Meet Theseus, the hero, and Helen of Troy, the beautiful face that launched a thousand ships.

Explore the terrains of Greece, where in pure blue skies, the sun scorches waxen wings and melts the fortunes of Icarus and Daedalus.
