                    Our new topic for this half term is 'The Greeks'. 

The Ancient Greeks is an exciting topic.  Mrs Lund has prepared an exciting, 'Time Traveller' project for you all to have a go at.  Have fun investigating the Ancient Greeks.

Today we are going to be learning about the Ancient Greek Olympic Games.

1.  Click on the BBC Bitesize link to learn more about the Ancient Olympic Games.

3.  Try to create freeze frames of the different events included in the games.  Can someone in your family guess what you are doing?  You could even send me a photograph to see if I can guess. (

4.  Are all the events in the Olympic games today different?
