Year 5 Term 1 Overview

Ancient Greece Day

Wow! Year 5 have had a cracking start to the year...seriously. We have hopped in our time machine and travelled back in time 2500 years... to Ancient Greece! We had a fabulous visit from Richard from the History Squad who shared all the gruesome truths about the Spartans, how Ancient Greece was made up of many city states and lots of awesome artefacts!

While the time portal to Ancient Greece was open, we also took note of some of their fresh, fresh produce and used it to create our very own Greek Salads. The children went through the entire Design and Technology process to make these products: Research > Design > Create > Evaluate. Now they've done it in school, we're pretty sure they're ready to do it for you at home too! Check out these links which explain a little bit more about how we can be sustainable with our foods:
