It was a busy week for Year 6 last week, not only were some of the children on residential, we also managed to squeeze in a Greek Day. Their costumes were fantastic and they participated in the activities like true Ancient Greeks. They found out about everyday life, slavery, the battle between Athens and Sparta, learned the Greek alphabet and practiced writing using ink, paper and also wax tablets. They looked at artefacts and learned to play Greek games. And finally by the end of the day, they even became hoplite soldiers, demonstrating their battle calls complete with shields and spears! In their sketchbooks, they produced some fantastic artwork, showcasing their knowledge of Greek pottery and what it tells us about everyday Ancient Greek life.
