The Olympus Challenge is run by Classics for All and has been designed to recognise the work of students who are studying classics on an extra-curricular basis or as a non-examined curriculum subject.
In Autumn 2, our year 4 children studied a wide range of subjects within our topic - Ancient Greece - and applied for accreditation with Classics for All.
On January 24th 2020, we were pleased to present the children with their certificates, endorsed by a number of university and further education partners.
To complete the challenge, the children had to complete 3 of the following modules (of which we completed 4!):
A: at least one term studying a cultural or historical topic related to classics (Ancient Greeks)
B: at least one term studying classical literature (The Iliad)
C: at least one term studying Latin or Greek
D: a creative response (e.g. film, drama, art, creative writing) to a classical topic (Papier Mache Greek pots and The Iliad Dance Performance)
E: a study visit to a museum, classical site, theatre etc. which culminates in a presentation or debate on a topic related to the classical world (Trip to the British Museum to see Troy: Myth and Reality)
Well done year 4!
