History

We presented our research about an aspect of Ancient Greek life to the class. We learned about gods, food, famous mathematicians such as Euclid and Pythagoras, found out about the Battle of Marathon, clothing, numbers and writing and even watched a dance.

We made models, paintings and drawings to show what life might have been like in Ancient Greek times. Our art and design work was extremely impressive.

We learned about the clothes they wore in Ancient Greek times. We made costumes and even had a fashion show!

We learned about the foods they ate in Ancient Greece and tasted examples that we had made. We tried sardines, honey biscuits, an ancient soup recipe, olives, dates, home-made bread dipped in olive oil, tzatziki, taramasalata, pita bread, honey cakes, baklava, feta cheese and delicious salads. We thought that Ancient Greek food was very healthy!

We compared political systems in Ancient Greece with our own political system today in the UK. Democracy started in Ancient Greece but only male citizens could vote.

We sequenced events from Ancient Greek times. We all disagreed on which way to sequence them. Some of us thought year zero should go on the left and some of us thought it should go on the right.

We thought about what we know already about Ancient Greece and posed questions to steer our research.
