Year 3 Greek Day
Last Friday, the Year 3 pupils concluded their topic on Ancient Greece by having a Greek Day. It was wonderful to see the children dressed up as Greek Gods and Goddesses, spartans, soldiers and other mythical creatures from the Greek myths we have been studying in class. As we were also celebrating World Autism Awareness Day, many of the children creatively included a 'splash of blue' in their costumes to celebrate this special day.
The day began with the children performing 'Living it up in Greece', a song they have been learning in their Singing lessons with Mrs Marie. Despite the soaring temperatures, the children sang wonderfully and drew a small crowd of teachers and other pupils in the Year 6 Quad. Then the fun began…
Splitting the year group into two groups, the children completed two activities - an Olympic style games event in the Red Room, working collaboratively to earn points for their assigned Greek city state - Athens, Sparta or Corinth; and food making and preparing. The children enjoyed making a Greek salad before eating it with some pitta bread and hummus. A wonderful end to our Term 2 topic.
A huge thanks to K.Top, Mrs Marie and the Estates team for their help in organising such a fun day and most importantly, a MASSIVE well done to all the Year 3 children for showing resilience and creativity in their learning throughout our topic.
