During term 5 in Maple class, we learnt about the Ancient Greeks in topic. In our literacy lessons we studied Greek myths and Greek theatre. We found out that Greeks worshipped a lot of gods and that they all featured heavily in their myths; either to help the heroes or to cause the problem that the hero needed to solve.
Greek theatre was an important part of life for many Ancient Greeks. Plays were performed by male actors who wore masks to portray different characters.
We read a lot of Greek myths and wrote our own. Then we turned some of the more popular Greek myths into plays which we wrote, directed and acted out to our parents. We all had a great time. Here are some pictures from our rehearsal.
