Year 4 Greek Day

On Thursday 8th February Year 4 had a fantastic day travelling back in time to the Ancient Greek period. The children started their day by creating a truce to enable them to all travel safely to Olympia for the sporting event. In preparation for the games and celebratory feast, the children spent some time making name plaques using the Ancient Greek alphabet, creating wreaths and cooking a range of dishes. After lunch, the children were split into four states Sparta, Athens, Crete and Olympian. The children then took part in a selection of sporting events including javelin, running and long jump. Well done to Athens for winning the Olympic games! However, due to the freezing cold temperatures, we quickly retreated back to the classroom for our lovely Greek feast.
