Year 3 Assembly

Year 3 took us back in time to show us what life was like in Ancient Greece, in a two-part assembly.  In ancient Greece, the Athenians demonstrated how democracy, art and education were important to them, whilst the Spartans clearly had war in mind! The two armies came together on stage to defeat the Persians and highlighted some important historical events from that time.

During the second scene, the children really enjoyed interpreting ‘Theseus and the Minotaur’, which has been studied in English as part of our focus on Greek Myths and Legends. Complete with costumes, ships, kings and princesses, the children delighted their parents with their professional acting and singing, and above all their sheer enjoyment and enthusiasm for performing on stage. The assembly also made valuable comparisons between Ancient Greece and our lives today. We learnt about the Olympic Games, Greek Architecture, Mathematicians Pythagoras, Euclid and Archimedes … to name just a few!  The children were also able to display a selection of their recent art work of enlarged Greek pottery designs, which had been created especially to set the scene. A big ‘Thank you’ from both Year 3 teachers for all the offers of support and help with costumes.Year 3 took us back in time to show us what life was like in Ancient Greece, in a two-part assembly.  In ancient Greece, the Athenians demonstrated how democracy, art and education were important to them, whilst the Spartans clearly had war in mind!
