This half term in History

This half term in history, year 8 have been studying the exciting Ancient Greeks. We have been looking at Ancient Greek culture, language, sport, religion, medicine and warfare. One of the most famous battles is history is the Battle of Marathon which took place in 490BC between the Athenians and the Persians. We staged a reenactment of the dramatic battle, with the Persians, despite outnumbering the Athenians, being defeated. Role play is an important part of learning about history as it allows students to gain more of an understanding of what it would have been like to experience an event in the past.
