Ancient Greece Stunning Starter

For our stunning starter, we tasted some traditional Greek foods to get us thinking about our Learning Adventure about Ancient Greece.  Among other things, we tried green olives, feta cheese and Greek yoghurt.


Ruby Stunning Starter Ancient Greece

As an introduction into our new topic ‘Ancient Greece’ we had a Greek tasting morning. We were able to listen to Greek music whilst tasting new and different foods; tzatziki, feta, olives, flat bread, Greek yoghurts and couscous. The children were very brave and tried most things, some went down well some not so well.

‘ I do not like olives!!’ – Toby

‘The couscous was amazing’ – Mollie

The feta was lovely even with honey’ – Fiona

‘I recommend the honey’ – Matthew

‘I found out I really like tzatziki’ – Noah

‘Everything was amazing’ -Kosma

‘All the food was bad except from the bread, I would not have wanted to live in ancient Greece’ -Lewis
