The Iliad Project

Pupils in Year 5 explore some of the world’s oldest literature in fresh and lively ways.

All Year 5 classes take part in The Iliad Project, led by Jonny Walker. Pupils learn about Greek mythology, classical poetry and the story of the Trojan War. The sessions include a mix of literature study, drama and philosophical enquiry, and there are some very strange things going on.

This means that with our ambitious approach to English, our children have the right to explore these important stories, combine them with stories from our own cultures, and be a part of the age-old traditions of the storyteller.
