Today was fantastic! The children had so much fun they didn’t even realise they were learning at the same time!! Excellent use of drama, music and craft to teach children about Ancient Greece. Super!

We (staff and children) absolutely loved the Greek day. You fit it all in so well around our school timetable, were so knowledgeable and the children were enthralled throughout. There was a great range of activities, with a breadth of topics covered, all in line with our curriculum. Thank you very much!
