Year 5 will be Outdoor Explorers and enter into Hero training in order to face some Mythical monsters and difficult obstacles in a class Olympics at the end of term. We will hear about some Greek Heroes and Gods and use them to inspire some Epic activities including fighting Hydras, Making bows and arrows, building chariots, and safely making fire. The hardships of the heroes and heroines we hear about in greek mythology often used their strife to spur them on and we will talk about how that might feel and how we might also do this. We will practice and perform a number of different Olympic forest school-style games, make our own tree medals and then compete against each other in the spirit in which the games are meant to be played. We will often discuss how willing and losing feel, and how these feelings might encourage us to get up and try again, or to help others to also be successful.
