This week Year 5 focused on the timeline of Ancient Greece.

We were given important dates in a jumbled order and had to place events chronologically on our timelines. We learned about Classical Greece, the Dark Ages, the Archaic Period, Mycenean Civilisation, and the Hellenistic period.

We discussed the importance of Classical Greece and how this was when Greece entered a golden age which lasted for 200 years. The people built fantastic temples, made scientific discoveries, wrote plays and founded the first proper democracy.

When we were done we decorated our timelines! We had such a lovely history class learning about these important time periods!
