This topic we had planned for the Summer Term in school is 'Island Life'. The history element to this is Ancient Greece.
Espresso has information and activities to help you to find out a bit more about life in Greece nearly 3000 years ago. Just click on the link below and log in. If that doesn't work go to central.expresso.co.uk and search for Greeks then click on the 'module'
Ancient Greece Presentation
Write an information booklet or create a presentation all about Ancient Greece. It can be handwritten, PowerPoint or even some video or an animation you've made... you choose. Use the links and documents we have given you above and your own research to find out interesting information. You could include the geography, the people and how they lived, the Olympics, famous people, how they were ruled, what they believed... you choose what part of Ancient Greek history interests you.
Use your knowledge about the features of information texts to ensure quality writing. We would like it to be illustrated well too.
See the links and documents below for help with how to write an excellent information text.
If you decide to type up your information in a PowerPoint or Word document, remember to ask our parents to email it to us.
Below are some examples of non-chronological reports. Have a look and see if they have included the features you would expect in non-fiction writing.
