We are learning all about the Ancient Greeks this term in History. The children have loved learning about a different time. I have been amazed with the prior knowledge the children had, especially their understanding of the different Greek Gods. The above work is from a child in 5TA who I was really impressed with his informative report on the comparison between the two states- Athens and Sparta.
