Ancient Greek day
The children LOVED the Ancient Greek day! They learnt so much about the Ancient Greek culture. They learned about sacrifice 100 cows to appease the Gods, who the Gods and Goddesses were, feasting, competitive games, the Parthenon with the statue of Athena, that the statue has disappeared, that the Parthenon is being fixed, the importance of parades, Greek Markets, carving marble (plaster) and of course Greek Theatre. The children dressed up to fully experience life as an Ancient Greek!
In PSHE, the children thought about the similarities and differences of a new child entering the school and class. They empathised with feelings and used our Christian core values to consider how they could show respect and acceptance.
