Year 4 are studying The Ancient Greeks this term with a particular focus on ‘What the Ancient Greeks did for us’. We started our topic by locating Greece and its surrounding countries on a map of Europe. Following that, we identified when the Ancient Greeks lived and labelled this on a timeline. We then ordered the key battles and historical events of this period. In our next lesson we examined examples of Greek artefacts before becoming archaeologists and making our own discoveries! We dug up pieces of Greek pots and worked together to piece these together. We then carefully examined the images on the pots and used our detective skills to make deductions about what life might have been like in Ancient Greece! As part of our European Day of Languages, Year 4 learnt to sing the alphabet in Greek. Click on the media below to hear Year 4 singing during assembly.
