BACK TO SCHOOL: Ancient Greek Day at Kings Rise Academy

Words and pics supplied by KRA Editorial Team

This half term, Year 4 have been exploring the topic of Ancient Greece throughout their lessons and on Wednesday 8 May, they spent the whole day learning all about Ancient Greece through lots of fun activities and games.

They came into school (along with the teachers) dressed as Gods and Goddesses and ate traditional Greek food like olives and yoghurt. The children and staff had the best day and learnt so much along the way.

Throughout the day, the children learnt all about myths and legends, popular food and clothing and even had a go at learning some Ancient Greek writing themselves!

Luke (year 4) said “he loved learning about the Olympics and statues” and Kree (year 4) said “I would really like to have more days like this, it has been the best”.

We spoke with Mrs Hagans (Year 4 Teacher) and she said: “The children had such a fun day learning all about the Ancient Greeks, it was a great success and we hope to do another one soon!”

After speaking with the children and staff, it’s clear that the day was a huge success and Kings Rise Academy as always has a busy schedule with lots more amazing days to look forward to!
