Ancient Greek Workshop 25.01.18

Year 3 and 4 enjoyed a fantastic day being Ancient Greeks for the day. We had fun acting out the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur and later the battle of Marathon. David was a brave Theseus and James his father Aegeas, while Taylor enjoyed being Ariadne.

Lauren taught us some fun Greek games and puzzles; the Stomachion puzzle was invented by Archimedes and was a tricky tangram of 14 pieces.

We also learnt about Greek armour and weapons as the Ancient Greeks loved fighting. Nessi tried on a heavy bronze helmet and Ana held a huge Spartan shield - they both looked very impressive.

Lauren then split us up into Athenians and Spartans for our very own Olympics, which became very competitive. After a range of exciting events , Year 4 finally won. Lauren taught us so much about the amazing Ancient Greeks and made it such fun.

Recently Year 4 enjoyed a fascinating workshop on the work of ORCA - a charity that works to protect whales, dolphins and porpoises.

 

It was a fantastic hands-on learning experience for the children, who were able to handle a range of models and exhibits relating to different whale and dolphin species. We learnt some amazing facts about these wonderful sea mammals and the children responded very enthusiastically.
