Today we heard the story about Prometheus and the fire. We made our own torches and then we walked around the school to announce the start of the ancient Greek Olympics. We shouted the Olympic motto: Citius, Altius, Fortius, which is Latin for Faster, Higher, Stronger.
Then it was time to start the games. We were all divided up in teams: Spartans, Athenians, Corinthians and Argives. The Spartans always cheat because they want to win. We had to proof we have been in training for at least 10 months. Then we greeted the statue of the Greek God Zeus. If you cheat or chat you have to build a new statues of Zeus. The first traditional event is trumpet playing but we only have recorders. It was a draw.
In the afternoon we did lots of activities. There were labyrinths, an archaeological dig to help us find out more about the past, Greek vases to make, Greek stories to listen to, a Greek hairdressers, coins and laurel wreaths to make, clay pots and Greek writing. We had fun!
