For history this week, I would like you to explore the treasures of the acropolis. Sitting proudly on top of the acropolis, you will fine the Parthenon - a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena.
Below, you will find youtube clips which explain how we think the Ancient Greeks built the temple, the history - and uses - of the site and a tour around the Parthenon today. I have also added a story which tells us how both Athena and Poseidon wanted to reside over Athens and how their quarrel was resolved through a challenge.
1. I have provided a range of comprehension activities for you to complete for your reading activities this week (aim to complete the second or third example in each pack as they get progressively more difficult.)
2. Re-write the story of Poseidon and Athena from the perspective of one of the characters.
3. Write a diary entry after a visit to the Acropolis - in ancient or modern times. What would you see? Why where people there? How did you feel?
Remember features of diary writing -past tense, first person, chatty/informal tone, recall the key events of one day and finally chronological order.
