Dear Caradoc parents,
To support our topic of ‘The Ancient Greece’, we are planning an exciting and educational ‘Greek Day’ Monday 7th June 2021. This will be after the Half Term week off – the first day back.
The children will participate in a variety of activities throughout the day, comprising of:
- Greek dancing
- Making Greek food
- Food tasting
- Wine Making or Grape juice (squashing grapes)
- Douris- an ancient Athenian red-figure vase-painter and potter active c. 500 to 460 BCE – Printing
We would like to provide the children with the opportunity to taste a range of Greek foods such as: Olives, Feta cheese(dairy free alternative) and Pitta bread. As part of the experience we would like the children to make a Greek salad and Moussaka, therefore we need a selection of fresh vegetables on the day. In order for us to provide these enriching activities we ask if you could provide a small donation of £1.50 This will go towards all food making and tasking, resources for the art project which will be available to take home. We also ask if children can bring in a Tupperware tub with a sealed lid to take food home afterwards.
To add to the atmosphere and fun on the day, we ask all children to come dressed as a Greek character. There are lots of creative costume ideas on the internet so be creative and you have time to make or find an outfit.
We look forward to sharing our Greek experience with the children and thank you for your continued support.
Miss Wright and Mrs Lewis
