Over half term, Year 5 busily crafted and built amazing Trojan horses. With hidden trap doors, impressive wooden craftsmanship and even lego, the children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about how the Trojan War begun. Year five even took to the school field where they re-enacted various events; some stood proud as King Menelaus with his hungry army whilst the ‘Greeks’ sat silently still waiting for Odysseus’ cunning plan to start.
As part of our topic, we welcomed ‘The Living History Workshop’ to our school on Thursday 8th June. The day was enjoyed by everyone (including the adults) – the children witnessed what life would have been like in the hustle and bustle of the Athenian market, marched to the Parthenon to worship Athena, trained as part of the Spartan Army and even experienced their first Olympic games.
