Today we have travelled back in time to the 776BC- When the Ancient Greek’s began!
We have taken part in many different activities including:
- Food tasting
- Designing a Greek theatre mask
- Making a Greek theatre mask using Papier Mache
- Ancient Greek myths
- Olympic sporting rehearsals
With the food tasting, we sampled many different Ancient Greek foods including: Hummus, Tzatziki, Taramasalata, Yoghurt & chickpeas, pita bread, olives, feta cigarillos, halloumi, mousaka and baklava. We even decided to drink Elderflower & Apple flavoured water as we know the Greek’s typically drank wine.
The foods were definitely a range of different flavours, some spicy and others packed with garlic.Here are some pictures of us sampling the different foods….
“I really liked the pita bread because it was yum!” Robbie
“I loved the yoghurt dip because it was sour.” Jamie
“My baklava had syrup on it so that mixed with the nuts was really tasty…” Emily
We also got to explore Greek theatre, and designed our very own Greek mask which shows one emotion. We then used Papier mache to thicken our masks (all on top of a balloon). We still need some more time to finish these as the drying takes a LONG time.
As the weather is so lovely outside, we went and sat in the shade and listened to different Greek Myths- all read by different children who volunteered. It was lovely to listen to the children and see the respect from the other children.
Then, we finished the day off with a fantastic practice of the skill ‘running’ which was commonly performed during the Olympics! We had a go at this and even had a competition between house teams!
It has been a very busy day today but we have had lots of fun! Have you had a good day today? What was your favourite part?
