Year 5 Ancient Greece Workshop

Last Wednesday Year 5 went back 2,500 years - back to Ancient Greece! The children had the wonderful opportunity to take part in an Ancient Greece Workshop that visited the school. Taking part required them to dress as ancient Greeks, and they didn't disappoint; they looked absolutely amazing in their fantastic costumes! During the morning session the children carved soap, made olive oil for lamps, which they lit, created mosaics and made jewellery.  During the afternoon session the children learned about everyday life in Ancient Greece and took part in a vote, to show how democracy worked 2500 years ago.

Photos of the mosaics and the other activities the children took part in, can be seen in the gallery below.
