Last week Year 5 had a fabulous day embracing our inner Greek gods and goddesses.

In the morning, we split into five Greek cities – Argos, Athens, Corinth, Troy and Sparta, and we created banners to lead our team into the Olympic ring.

We took part in javelin throwing and the winners paraded around the ring triumphantly.

After all that hard work, we celebrated with a Greek banquet where we shared food and conversed about Greek topics.

After lunch, we gathered to watch the exciting ‘Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief’, we watched very carefully as we will be using parts of the film to inspire our writing.

All in all, it was a fabulous day where the children were really immersed in the Greek lifestyle.

Thank you for your efforts at home to help with costumes. Everyone looked amazing!
