Everything Greek

Wednesday 19 June saw Year 4 enter a time machine which resulted in the whole year group being transformed into a world of frenzied Olympians, scrumptious Mediterranean cuisine and skilful Greek craft making. A truly fantastic day started with the opening ceremony when the Olympic flame was lit. The echoes of true sporting endeavour, the clanking and scraping of classical crafts being made and the beautiful Greek recorder compositions the children produced combined to create a really authentic atmosphere.

With the Olympic Games and Greek craft making complete the children, in their individual city states, headed for the Infant Hall where a sumptuous feast awaited them. The Megarians in the shape of 4E were informed of their victory at the games after which the students enthusiastically tucked in to their moussaka, cheese pies and traditional salads. This hearty feast, combined with some Greek theatre and recorder compositions helped to make the day truly memorable. The Greek citizens left at the end of the day… reflective, happy and with a Greek coin and mask to remind them of their wonderful adventure.
