Year 6 started off the day by finding out the history of Ancient Greece. Then they moved on to the Archimedes puzzle. The children worked in teams to use a range of shapes with the aim to create a square. Then they enjoyed a Greek quiz, blinding the answers on information boards. Next, they had a game of Petteia- an Ancient Greek strategy game. This was very tense and great for strategic thinking!
At lunchtime, the children feasted on traditional foods of Greece.
In the afternoon, they looked at the weapon art of Ancient Greece and they learned about and performed the traditional March. They finished off the day by trying out some of the sports from the Ancient Olympic Games.
Thank you to Martin for leading this Workshop and allowing the children to participate in such an outstanding learning opportunity.
