Y4 Ancient Greece Day
Date: 23 May 2018
Time: 09:00 - 09:00
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.
