Year 5 have been learning about the Ancient Greeks. We had an â€˜Ancient Greeceâ€™ day where we dressed up as Ancient Greeks and held our own Ancient Greek Olympic Games.
We also learnt how to write our names using the Ancient Greek alphabet. It was quite difficult
We worked in research groups to find out about to make presentations about Ancient Greeks.
Making Ancient Greek Pots This was great fun! Making Greek Pots from Modroc and clay. The work was very messy and quite difficult. First we had to make the shape of the pots. When the modroc and clay was dry, the pots had to be painted. The pictures on the pots tell the stories of important events in Ancient Greece. Some show scenes from Ancient Greek myths and legends.
When the pots were finished, we invited parents and friends to visit the Greek Pot Exhibition in our classrooms.
