Bread, board game and battle as ancient Greece comes to life at Bishop's Stortford primary school Windhill21 for a day
Ancient Greece was brought to life at Windhill21 as the Bishop's Stortford primary school’s pupils celebrated Hellenic history.
Year 6 children enjoyed activities which ranged from making their own pitta bread and writing messages using the ancient Greek alphabet to creating a 'Brilliant or Brutal' board game – and even re-enacting the Battle of Marathon!
The classes also brought a taste of the Mediterranean to their curriculum and enjoyed sampling Greek food including home-made bread courtesy of Bishop's Stortford café and delicatessen Nostimo in Market Square.
Class teacher Sara Mihajlovic said the children were surprised to learn how little the Greek diet had changed over thousands of years.
Head Philippa Moore said: “The children really benefit from days such as these. History is brought to life and they are immersed in memorable experiences that make learning stick and ignite new passions."
