Ancient Greek Day 2021 

Year 6 will be taking part in an 'Ancient Greek Day' as a hook into the first term's topic on Ancient Greece. We will be making own Chitons on Friday 3rd September so don't forget to bring a plain white/cream/grey flat sheet into school on the first day back.

The morning workshop consists of a short introduction to Greek life and culture, followed by four engaging activities:

  • A Greek quiz, with loads of fun Greek facts for the children to discover
  • Archimedes’ Stomachion – the oldest known mathematical puzzle
  • Petteia, the Greek strategy game
  • Myths and legends – the children are transported to a Greek theatre where they re-enact Greek myths and legends

After lunch, your Greek warrior will demonstrate his weapons and armour. Then the differences between the city states of Athens and Sparta are explored, the children take a lesson in democracy, which is followed by a mini Olympic Games.

The great battle of Gaugamela between Alexander the Great and King Darius will round off an engaging and fun day.

Did you know…?

Our Greek Warriors are very much in demand for their depth of knowledge and enthusiasm for their subject. They have appeared in many films, historical documentaries and on the BBC’s “Horrible Histories”.
