Illiad: Students in Year 5 have been filling their heads with some of the most ancient stories, in the Iliad Project. All classes are learning the story of the Trojan War, as told in Homer’s epic poem ‘The Iliad’, written nearly 3,000 years ago.
In the project, we learn what the Greeks believed about how the world began, before launching into a half-term of storytelling. Students take on roles, acting out the story and bringing it to life in our classrooms.
And not only that, the project gives us a chance to philosophise, to build up our confidence as performers, and to reflect on our own lives.
Congrats to Y5 for a brilliant start, and keep it up in the second half of the project.
