We learnt about some of the geography in Greece on "Other Cultures Day". The children enjoyed a Greek foods taster today ( most of them did anyway). They looked at pictures of some of the ancient sites, the island destinations and saw a video of the changing of the guard at the Presidential Palace in Athens where the Evzones, who are volunteers drawn from the Hellenic Army’s Infantry Corps, change guard each hour. They also designed their own Greek vase.

In R.E. this week, the children were learning about the Passover and how it is remembered by Jewish families today. They wrote scripts for an "expert" guest to explain the information.
