Session 2 - History- Ancient Greece

Today we are going to learn all about the political system in Ancient Greece and we are going to compare their system to the system we have in the UK today.

Go through the PowerPoint slides first and then divide your page into 2 to compare the different systems. Look at the image below for how to set this out.

Can you identify any similarities or differences?

You should work your way through each activity on the Basic Skills Activity PowerPoint First and then mark your answers once complete using the Basic Skills Answers PowerPoint. These are attached below.


It is vitally important that we keep these skills ticking over!

Session 4 - Literacy After Live Teaching Session

1.45pm - 2.45pm


This session follows on from our live lesson. The aim of today's session is understand and get familiar with another Greek Legend because next week, when we are back in school, we will be writing our own Legend

Today in your live lesson with Mrs Lisle you read The Trojan Horse. 

As a follow up to this lesson, I would like you to create a Story board of the Trojan Horse story. I would also like you to think about how this story is similar or different to Theseus and the Minotaur.

1. Read the Trojan Horse legend again from the PowerPoint below.

2. Use one page of your exercise book. Split it into 8 boxes (see image below). This is going to become your story board.

3. Decide on the 8 main things that happened in the legend, in order. These need to be the most significant things. 

4. For each box you need to write the main event and illustrate it appropriately. You must also colour this when finished.

5. Think about how this legend is different from the Theseus and Minotaur story.


Email it through to Mrs Lisle at the end of the day




Session 5 - Spelling and Reading

2.45- 3pm



This week we will start spellings as we would normally in class.

Below you will find attached the spelling sheet for each spelling group.

Make sure you practice your spellings each day. Why not set a timer and do "speed spell" I will do this too and let you know my score!

On Friday I will record the spellings for each group so that you can hear me say them out so you can do your test.



Find a quiet spot and escape into the world of your book -enjoy!
