Athens vs Corinth vs Argos vs Sparta in the Ancient Greece mini Olympics.
In the morning , on Friday 6th October 2017, Year 4 experienced what it would have been like in Ancient Greek times with a mini olympic event. It was held on the school field.
The competitors arrived in the hall to meet king of the Gods, Zeus, played by Mr McCarthy, a school volunteer.
“All of the competitors behaved perfectly,” commented Mr McCarthy.
They participated in 5 events, including the armour run and the javelin.
Klaudia exclaimed,“My favourite event was the javelin because I won!”
Connor in 4AW defeated his opponents by winning the marathon, running race and the shield race.
It was a fantastic experience for the children to learn more about Ancient Greece.
Their Headteacher, Mr Reid, said ”I am pleased that the Year 4 Olympics day went well, it is always really good when children can learn in a practical way. ”
