Ancient Greek Day
To launch their topic on Ancient Greece, Year 4 had a visit from an archaeologist called Katerina. Katerina talked to the children about what life was like in Ancient Greece and explained to them how we know so much about the civilisation. Katerina led the children on an archaeological journey with various activities to immerse themselves in Ancient Greek culture. To start the day, the children were shown a range of artefacts which they were asked to investigate to try and work out what they were! They were then shown the Ancient Greek alphabet and set about decoding a set of words all about Greece before competing in an Ancient Greek game. Finally in the afternoon, the children took part in an art activity before spending some time trying on and learning about Ancient Greek armour and warfare.
The children really enjoyed their immersion into their new topic and can't wait to find out more!
