ANCIENT Greek Workshop
We cover a huge amount about Ancient Greece by delivering a wide-range of hands-on and fun sessions.
Introduction - Alexander talks about his life as a Royal Greek Guard whilst dressed in full armour
Battle Formations and Tactics - The children get put through their paces by training as a Greek Hoplite. They each get a huge golden round shield and spear and learn how to get into the famous phalanx formation.
City-state Management - The children take part in an ecclesia (meeting). They are the elected members of the city of Athens and it is their job to see if they can make the right decisions to keep their city in a state of prosperity.
Ancient Greek Games - The children get to play some of the favourite games of the Ancient Greeks. Authentic wooden boards and clay playing pieces brings some realism to this session.
Ancient Greek Writing - Using real papyrus paper which has been sourced from Egypt, reed pens and ink, the children learn how to write in Ancient Greek.
As always, we will aim to provide a full day's worth of activities for up to 3 classes, because anything less, isn't really an 'Ancient Greek Day' for all involved, is it?
