Ancient Greek Week


This week is Ancient Greek week in Year 5.

Over the last few days we have been learning about the Ancient and Modern Olympics. Yesterday, was the Athens versus Sparta BIS Olympics.

After some discussion the students decided to include the following events:

Running (sprint), long jump, chariot racing (adapted to a wheel barrow race) discus, relay, wrestling and javelin.

The students really got into the spirit of things and everyone had lots of fun!


In the end, Sparta won the Olympics, but there is still everything to play for as we still have the debate and the re-enactment to go.
