Year 3 -Athens
Athens is the capital of Greece and one of the most ancient cities of the worlds. Athens Greece is famous as the birthplace of democracy. With a history of over 3,000 years, Athens is the best town for sightseeing. According to the myth, the city took its name after Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom and daughter of Zeus. She was the protector of the city and in fact, the temple of Parthenon on the Acropolis is dedicated to her.
The city is still dominated by 5th-century BC landmarks, including the Acropolis, a hilltop citadel topped with ancient buildings like the colonnaded Parthenon temple. The Acropolis Museum, along with the National Archaeological Museum, preserves sculptures, vases, jewellery and more from Ancient Greece.
In class, we have been learning about the ancient Greek Gods, Sparta, facts about Greece, as well as designing vases and Greek temples using straws with colourful backgrounds. An interesting fact we learnt about Athens is that it is one of the oldest capital cities in the world.
