On Tuesday, 3rd May Year 3 had a special day to link in with our topic on Ancient Greece. The children had already spent time investigating how Greeks would have dressed and had made their own swords, wreaths and shields so they would all look the part.

We were greeted by a Greek warrior, Panaeolus, who told us all about Greek democracy and the differences between Athens and Sparta. We were all amazed at how mean the Spartans sounded in the way they trained their young boys! The children became deeply focused when doing a “Stomachion”, a kind of Greek puzzle, and really enjoyed the challenges set by Panaeolus.

Later activities included playing Petteia, a Greek board game, and gaining an understanding of the meaning of democracy. After lunch, Panaeolus gave us some fantastic gory details about Greek warfare and strategy. Particularly impressive were his heavy metal greaves (shin pads), linen armour and helmet. Panaeolus told us all about Alexander the Great, Darius and the Persians. We then took part in our own mini Olympics.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and we learnt some facts that will never be forgotten!
