Orchid Class - Year 5


Teacher: Mr Scott
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Peel and Mr Ash


On Thursday 24th june, Orchid Class travelled back in time to Ancient Greece in order to learn more about this fascinating civilisation. Our visitor (from Portals to the Past) was fantastic, taking the children deep within the culture. We explored the differences between Athens and Sparta through a heated debate, the ins and outs of Greek warfare, the origins of the Olympics and the retelling of various Greek myths.

All children behaved impeccably throughout the sessions, truly getting into the spirit and supporting one another with all the activities. It was also great to see the amount of effort that every single child made with their outfits! Well done everyone. What a memorable day!
