Groundbreaking Greeks

In the Groundbreaking Greeks project, your child will learn about different periods of Greek history, exploring the earliest civilisations, the devastation of the Dark Age and the breakthroughs and developments of the Archaic and Classical periods. They will understand how the geography of Greece affected the development of city states and explore Athens, learning about the structure of the government and society. Children will get to know some of the most significant Athenians and understand why Greek art, culture, architecture, philosophy, medicine, and mathematics were so significant. Whilst studying the leadership of Alexander the Great, pupils will discover how ancient Greece eventually became part of the Roman Empire. They will explore how the Romans respected and developed Greek ideas, making them their own and spreading them throughout the Roman Empire. To end the project, your child will explore how the legacy of ancient Greece affects their lives today.
