15 Feb Ancient Greek Day
To bring the Ancient Greeks to life, Year 5 held a Greek day. The children all came dressed as Greek Gods, Goddesses and even Spartan soldiers ready to take step into the past.
We enjoyed a variety of interactive activities throughout the day, the highlight for many was the Spartan warrior fitness challenges, and jumping into the paddling pool barefoot to try grape stomping. We tickled our taste buds in the afternoon by making a traditional Greek feta salad and tzatziki. Even though the olives weren’t very popular, many of us were daring enough to give them a try!
It was an enjoyable and educational day which really allowed everyone in Year 5 to dive deeper into our topic.
