Greek day for Poplar On Wednesday 26th March, Poplar class went back in time to the time of Ancient Greeks. In assembly a lady showed us where the Ancient Greeks came in the time line. Carla, told us how Athens got its name after Athena the Greek Goddess, in a competittion. A few minutes later Carla came into Poplar and gave them a talk about the Ancient Greeks and what they ate. The whole class said that they loved that. Next Carla ground some wheat and made it into flour. Katie said that it was very hard to grind the wheat. Later on in the lesson we all got given a plain piece of foam, shaped like a pizza, and we had to think what the Greek people would eat and put it on the piece of foam. It was amazing third to see all the food we would have missed out on if we lived in Greek times. Later on they went into the hall and got to wear Greek armour for a game. They had to dodge the balls. Everyone said that it was the best part of the day, or maybe one of the best!!!
