Ancient Greece Bundle

Ancient Greece Bundle

This bundle is a combination of Week 1 Topic work on Ancient Greece, alongside playscripts based on Ancient Greek Myths (Literacy) and a week of Explanation Texts based on the Ancient Greeks too. The Literacy planning includes a week's worth of planning and differentiated resources along with an interactive notebook to support the lesson. The Ancient Greece Topic lesson, introduces children to Ancient Greece and provide them with the background knowledge for their Literacy lesson. Both have been taught by myself with my Year 5 class, who LOVED learning about the Ancient Greeks. I bundled them together for anyone (like me), who will teach them on the same/consecutive weeks.
