Friday 18th September – Ancient Greek Vases
We have been looking at Ancient Greek pottery and vases in our art lessons; ‘Black Figure Pottery’ was a common pottery style, where black figures were decorated orange clay. We have carefully drawn our own designs inside the outline of a Greek vase. They certainly look striking up on display in their ‘cabinet’ – be sure to come in and take a look!

Thursday 12th September – Ancient Greek WOW Day
WOW! What a way to kick-start our topic on the Ancient Greeks. We spent the morning making our outfits – a chiton and laurel wreath. In the afternoon, we moved on to the messy stuff – we created some Labyrinth-inspired prints, which we will use as a boarder for our display in the hall. Whilst the children were waiting their turn to join the “printing station”, they created patterns in the outline of a Minotaur head. We finished the day by tasting and rating some Greek food and drink. There were some mixed reviews on the food but it was great to see so many children trying food they have never tried before…some even found new foods they really liked!
