This half term, we have been writing a non-chronological report, about the Ancient Greeks!
Here is a collection of work from across the lessons…
The Great Ancient Greeks
Did you know the Greek’s started in 776BC? However, they got invaded in 146BC by the Roman Empire. Fascinatingly, the Greek Empire was the most powerful between 200BC and 146B! Also, the Greek’s used chariots in battle in a Coliseum while they used their weapons!
Firstly, the women wore light, loose clothing as the weather was mostly hot through the year. Surprisingly, the men wore chitons down to their knees because they have to work in the burning hot weather. They have a belief that they can’t show their body as people could look at them in the wrong way so they wanted to be modest.
Yummy food and drink:
Interestingly, the Ancient Greeks grew lots of fruit and veg: olives, grapes, figs, wheat, bread, beans and they also kept goats for milk and cheese, Usually, the Ancient Greeks grew loads of tasty grapes and olives. Occasionally, in the summer months they ate plenty of dried fruit.
Surprisingly, tere were a range of jobs and they include: farming, teaching, soldiers, government workers and craftsman’s. Did you know farming was the most popular job for men because it was the most known job by men? Can you believe that the women had to look after the house? E.g. cooking, cleaning, and making clothes.
Did you know the first Olympic games were held in 776BC in the Greek City Olympia?
CAN YOU BELIEVE the words tragedy and comedy come from the language of the Greek’s? (Surprising right?)
Surprisingly, children played with balls made of tied up rags or bags of pigs bladder… (DISGUSTING)
Unbelievable, Greek’s believed in 12 Gods.
Like today, Ancient Greeks loved sports! They were very sporty.
