J3 Greek Day

Posted: 10th April 2012

J3P had a fantastic day at Woodfield joining in with J3R and J3S to learn about life in Ancient Greece. Everyone dressed in a Greek costume. The characters from Timezones  helped the children to take part in a fascinating debate about whether they wanted to join forces with Athens or Sparta city states. Athens won a close run vote. Next it was time to learn how to play Ancient Greek games and after that we all enjoyed a super lunch of Greek food.

The highlight of the afternoon was learning how to be hoplites {soldiers] Marching around the playground with shields and spears was great fun.

Some of the words used to describe the day were” fantastic”, “great”, “so much fun”, “exciting,”” I really enjoyed the marching”, “I loved it!” ”I really liked the games.”
