In war torn Greece, every four years the fighting is stopped in order to honour Zeus, king of the gods. Your children, swearing allegiance to their state, travel to Olympia where we train the children as athletes to compete in the first Olympic festival; five days of physical endurance! Looking at the individual disciplines, we involve all the children in a workshop which requires focus and teamwork. There is a short introduction at the beginning covering the life of Ancient Greeks in general terms to provide some context before embarking on the games!
WHAT TEACHERs SAY...
Please pass on my thanks (and those of my team and children in year 5!) for the fantastic workshops that were delivered today - a brilliant, funny and engaging way to learn more about Ancient Greece - I certainly learnt lots!
