Groovy Greeks

This terms project is focusing on the Ancient Greeks. We will be looking at the lives of children in those times and how the Ancient Greeks have influenced today's society. On Tuesday 12th of January we held a Greek day where children were invited to travel back in time to around 2000BC (the beginning of the Ancient Greek era) and live a day in the life of a child from that time. Normal lessons were adapted to what children would have been taught at that time (minus the wrestling practice) but we got to sample some Philosophy, Arithmetic and play traditional games.


We look forward to another exciting project with the children and will look to share as much of the work as possible below is the Project Map, showing all of the areas we plan to cover.

This week Cherry were asked to interpret and create a sequence of dance to represent an Ancient Greek myth or legend. This is just one example of the fantastic ideas on show.
