The Year 5 classes have had visitors from Durham University showing items them their Ancient Greek handling collection. They were able to look at and touch a combination of real and replica objects. They became archaeologists and recorded their findings, whilst trying to work out what the objects were and what they were used for. At the end of the session, all was revealed and they learned some amazing facts about the Ancient Greeks! They then created their own votive offerings from clay and produced their own campaign as it would have been used in a Greek democracy. They had to use the Greek alphabet to write their campaigns. The final task was to perform a Greek play using costumes and masks. The children had a fantastic day and learned so much about their topic.
