It's all Greek to us!

User Rating:  / 3

This week we have combined continuing our Groovy Greeks topic with celebrating European Day of Languages and it has proved to be great fun!


We learnt a bit more about Greece and some famous Greek people in history and today and we practised some simple Greek words a phrases so that, should we meet a Greek or go to Greece on holiday, we could greet people and introduce ourselves. We practised this using some role play. We learnt the numbers 1 to 10 too and practised saying them in order.

We also enjoyed looking at the Greek alphabet which is VERY different from ours and we used a song to try and remember some of the letter names.

Look at the video below to see how we tried to learn these - Can you keep up?

Finally we looked at the design of the Greek flag and thought about interesting ways that we could recreate it.

We finally took inspiration from the most recent Eurovision Song contest and the postcard flags which each act created before they performed. We made our flag using the images of shells which we all contributed to in order to use and develop our effective collboration skills.
