This week saw the children and teachers in Year 5 coming to school dressed as someone from numerous different civilisations that have developed throughout history.
It was amazing to see the variety and the amazing costumes. The children then participated in a variety of activities to show them a little bit more about the lives of the people who lived during different periods of time. These activities included; writing using ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, painting using natural materials such as spices in the style of prehistoric man, moulding clay bowls and figurines using Minoan influences, writing your name like a Viking using runes and fighting like a gladiator in Ancient Rome.
It was a wonderful opportunity for all the children to have a glimpse into the past and prepare them for the unit of study, AD 900.
