Greek Day

On Friday 9th May, Year 5 were visited by an Athenian from Ancient Greece. The morning was filled with workshops at the market place where the children became apprentices, mastering skills needed for trading including making mosaics, clay pots, and charms, painting tiles and frescos, creating wax tablets and mixing herbal remedies. The morning ended with news that, even without the help of our Spartan neighbours, the Athenians defeated in Persians in a mighty battle.

 

The afternoon was filled with entertainment in the amphitheatre to celebrate the Greek triumph. The children became slaves and fed the audience with a Greek feast, dancers celebrated the cycle of life, actors re-enacted famous myths and stories and the hopilites (Greek soldiers) performed a sequence of attacking moves.

 

The day was a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by all children who looked brilliant in their costumes.
