5 Blue’s Greek Day

Today was Ancient Greek day in Year 5 and we were so impressed with all the effort the children made to dress up. Look at our wonderful costumes….

Today we created our Greek sculptures out of clay.

The children researched life in Ancient Greece and what was invented during this period.

They also tried Greek dancing….

They explored key events during the Ancient Greek period and linked to British and school values.


Challenges:

*Compare the Olympics then and now.

*Tell me about the sculpture you created.

  1. Compare the Olympics then and now

    Now in boxing there are more than 1 rounds
    Now the olympics last longer
    Before there were fewer events than modern olympics.
    People from different countries can play

    *Tell me about the sculpture you created.
    I used clay to make my sculpture. Since , I was making Poseidon I had to make a trident so I used wire to make a trident

  2. COMPARE THE OLYMPICS AND NOW
    1. The Olympics only did for around 1 or 2 days but we now do it for 16 days.
    2. We have different country’s doing the Olympics but they only had one country doing it because it took too long and it was hard to travel this links to why its only a few days.
    3. They didn’t have cloths so they did it naked but now we have clothes to wear.

    TELL ME ABOUT THE SCULPTURE YOU MADE
    My sculpture was Poseidon as they believe the God of the sea.

    LIFE IN ANCIENT GREECE AND NOW
    They used to do the boxing for 1 round but now we usually do it for like 12 rounds. The food they ate like the main food was bread porridge and a range of vegetables but now we have many foods so there not really a main food. They used to dance to there gods but wqe dont do that now because there are different cultures.
