May23Y4 Ancient Greece Day
For their History topic, the children in Y4 are studying the Ancient Greeks. We have arranged ‘History off the Page’ to come into school to deliver a one-day workshop to support this topic. They deliver a focused day to develop history education through practical learning, storytelling and drama. The children dress in role as citizens of the time and enjoy a day full of practical, hands-on learning.
We have been lucky enough to have had ‘History off the Page’ several times at Aboyne Lodge School and the children have always thoroughly enjoyed the day and learned a great deal. We feel that Year 4 would greatly benefit from the company’s Ancient Greek Day.
During the day there will be a Greek banquet. Below is a list of food that are possibilities to include for the banquet. Please indicate in the comment box on Gateway if you are happy for them to try these foods:
Olives, Sponge cakes, Blackcurrant squash, Grapes, Dates, Figs, Apples, Pitta bread, Feta cheese, Honey.
We will be giving the children a sheet of costume ideas or a simple option is for your child to wear shorts, a long white t-shirt and a belt.
On the day of this workshop we will need up to 6 adult helpers (preferably dressed in Ancient Greek costume!). Please pop in to the Y4 team or let us know via email to the office if you are able to volunteer.

Jun10St Albans Marathon Volunteering (8:00 AM)
This year’s half marathon is Sunday 10th of June and we need a team of eight volunteers (minimum) to help marshal the event. This earns great money for ALSA (around £300 for a half day’s work) and it’s good fun as well, especially if you can’t contemplate actually running 13 miles!
We need people to be available (at our spot on Bedmond Lane) from around 8am until 2pm latest. Our job is to clap, cheer, offer encouragement and help anyone who is struggling. The runners and walkers always say what a difference it makes to have good marshals and at our spot some 11.5 miles into their route (and on a hill as well) some of them are really grateful for that bit of a boost.
If you can help, please contact Debbie Knowles at email@example.com or on 07812 041148.
We are also hoping that many of you will also be joining in on the 1.5K Fun Run!!
