Form 3 celebrate Greek Day

As part of our history topic 'Ancient Greece', Form 3 celebrated Greek Day last week. The children spent the day off timetable and dressed up in tunics called chitons to get into the spirit of things.

We started the day looking at the many things the Ancient Greeks have left behind. Did you know they invented the yo-yo, rattles for babies, boxing, sundials and soldering irons amongst other things?

After break, Antonis' mum came in to make tzatziki with us. We all got our own pot and added each of the ingredients - yoghurt, cucumber, mint and olive oil. The best part was when we got to dip in toasted pitta bread and taste it!

In the afternoon we were visited by a Greek dancing teacher. She taught us a dance from ancient times where they worshipped a deity. The Ancient Greeks danced in a circle because they believed it kept the evil spirits out. We looped around inside the circle to symbolise the labyrinth from the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur. We performed the dance for our parents and showed off our class presentations and clay pots we made in art lessons.

A great day was had by all!
