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.


*Compare the Olympics then and now.

*Tell me about the sculpture you created.

  • Tell me about life in ancient Greece and compare with modern life in Britain.

    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

    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

    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.

    My sculpture was Poseidon as they believe the God of the sea.

    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.

  4. In the olympics in Ancient Greece they had put in a lot more violence than the one now and they had a lot less restriction when fighting.

    The main differences we have with The Ancient Greeks is
    -they had not let girls go to school
    -they do not have technology we have today
    – they have a limited amount of jobs
    – the boys fight for more than 7 years in some regions

  5. In the Olympic Games now it is less violent then before and there are less sports .Before there was only 1 round but now there many rounds in the games like boxing there is about 12 rounds in a boxing match.My sculpture is about the Greece king of Gods Zeus.In Ancient Greek there were lots of Gods and now there is a royal family in Modern Britain.

    Ancient Greece had a warm, dry climate, as Greece does today. Most people lived by farming, fishing and trade. Others were soldiers, scholars, scientists and artists however in Britain life is different we do not have warm dry climate we mostly have cloudy weather. Most people have jobs to earn money and they work in many different places like shops, teachers and dentists.
