Year 4 have had a great fun while learning about their new thematic topic 'Meet the Greeks' with Steve from Humphs Histories. They learnt lots of facts including how we find out about the past, where Greece is in relation to the rest of the World, how far the Greeks travelled, and the evidence that tells us this, what the Ancient Greeks ate, Greek gods and the legacy that has been left behind.
They attempted the Archimedes Puzzle, which was a little tricky, but with perseverance they solved it in the end 🙂
The class were divided into two groups - the Athenians and the Spartans, within their groups they each painted their own shield which they used later in the afternoon to protect themselves, after they attempted crushing grapes, with their feet!
The day finished with Year 4 participating in two Olympic events - the discus and the javelin. Watch this space, we may have a future Olympian within Year 4.
A great day was had by all.
