St. Philip’s Catholic Primary School Uckfield … Ancient Greek day

Year six children at St. Philip’s Catholic Primary School Uckfield, swapped maths and English for haggling and bartering, when they became Ancient Greeks for the day.

Gods and goddesses rubbed shoulders with market traders as the children immersed themselves in life as it would have been 500 years BC.

The day, delivered by Living History Workshops, involved, amongst a range of activities, carving tiles for the Parthenon, performing a Greek play and engaging in early Olympic games.

The children were also treated to a Greek feast, laid on by the Year 6 staff.

Angela Wilding, assistant headteacher and Year 6 class teacher, said, “It was wonderful to see the children dressed up in their Greek costumes and participating so enthusiastically in a day that really brought their topic to life!”
