As historians, Year 5 students told their visitors about the differences between Athens and Sparta, using performances to demonstrate the differences between the great Oligarchy (Sparta) and the Democracy (Athens). The next exhibit was the ‘Persian Wars’; students informed their guests about the bold Persian Emperors, Xerxes and Darius, and their hunger for expanding their empire. They explained in detail the events of the invasion of Greece, through the eyes of Herodotus and the resistance, the Persians met at Thermopylae, Salamis and Plateau.

Further along the corridor more students informed the visitors about Alexander the Great who became King in 336BC, had three wives and expanded the Greek Empire, all at the age of 32. As Geographers, students located the areas of Alexander the Great’s empire and the impact his legacy has had on the world today.

The next exhibit was Roman buildings and Greek architecture. The visitors learnt about the Coliseum, The Acropolis and the Parthenon. Students showed their guests a range of tragic and comedic masks from Greek Theatre. As writers, they displayed an exhibit about Greek myths, and explained how the Greeks used phenomena to explain how the world works.

The exhibition then moved into the Roman Army; the children told the guests about the brave Roman soldiers, how they were had immense discipline, what they wore, their weaponry and formations in battle.

Finally, the exhibition moved into the period of post-Roman Empire.  As artists, the students drew pictures of Alfred the Great. They explained how he bravely fought with valour in battle and his perseverance under difficult times. The students told their visitors about the Viking invasion of Britain and about the subsequent Anglo-Saxon and Viking settlements.
