World Knowledge

The Autumn term's World Knowledge context for learning is 'The Legacy of Adventure: Myths, Marvels and Mayhem.'

Over the term, we will be learning about the legacies of Ancient Greece, and investigating 3 main concepts:

democracy, conflict and equality.


We will be linking other areas of the curriculum to our context for learning this term.




Over our first term, we will be focusing on the text 'Leo and the Gorgon's Curse.' to link to our main theme. 

Buried amongst the treasures in Professor Brownstone's vaults lies a humble collection of books. Filled with legendary stories from his ancestors,

they tell of fearless fighters and unlikely heroes. This title ventures into Greek mythology, 

Full of dangerous challenges, cunning monsters and godly heroes, this text is sure to be a hit for our Autumn term!

Leo & the Gorgon's Curse



Throughout the year, we will be focusing on fiction and non-fiction texts. It is essential that your child reads a mix of book types,

even if they do have their favourite type.  What's your favourite genre of book?
