Greek detectives

Year 4 Robins received a request from Larry who is the nightwatchman at the museum!

He explained he had an important job and was in charge of the priceless Ancient Greek antiquities. However, there had been an accident… so he needed the class to help piece the pots back together!

In teams, Robins eagerly pieced the pots back together and discovered each one had a different picture on.
Next, the children had to consider what was happening in the picture and then explain what they thought this told us about Ancient Greeks. We discussed this is how historians and archaeologists find out about life in the past.

In their next lesson, Robins were able to use their computing skills and use the internet to research each different type of pot and find out what each one was used for.

Larry was really impressed with all their hard work – “Good job Robins!”
