It's All Greek to Me and Muddy Mayhem!

We've had an inspiring and fun time in Year 5 this week. On Thursday, we visited The Museum of Archaeology at Durham University to learn more about our topic of The Ancient Greeks. Thew children had the opportunity to handle artifacts and discuss what they were, who they were used by and what they were used for.

The children also had to decipher their names using the Greek alphabet, played an ancient Greek game and built a temple based on the ones from the past.

On the afternoon, the children acted out an Ancient Greek tragedy. The actors and the audience were magnificent!

To finish the week off, the children raised money for our school library by taking part in Muddy Mayhem. Well done to all children who took part!
