Year 6 Go Back in Time to Ancient Greece

Glorious Greek Day!

As part of the year 6 topic this half term, the children participated in an incredible Greek Day which included: a fun-filled drama workshop; spectacular clay modelling of mythological beasts and tasting authentic Greek food!

During the drama workshop, the children experienced what it would be like as an Athenian. As part of their role, the children took part in the Citizen's Assembly, where they had to vote on important decisions for their state. This included what to do when the Persians invaded and how to defend themselves. 

In small groups, children made a range of authentic Greek food including: Greek salad, tzatziki and much more before tasting these delights.

Children also made outstanding clay models of mythological beasts, which they had previously designed. In the upcoming weeks they will paint these and these will be on display for you to view at parents evening. 

Take a look at the pictures below to see the children in action.
