Our Own Ancient Olympics

Our Own Ancient Olympics

Last week saw the re-enactment of the Ancient Olympics as over seventy Year 7 children from Moreton, Yarlet and Abberley Hall joined forces to battle it out through fun versions of the various events including horse racing, wrestling, running, discus and javelin. The Olympics followed a morning of fact-finding about all matters ancient Greek and Olympic. Organiser and Head of Classics, Jude Morton, commented: "They all worked really hard in the morning on the learning side of things and then went on to have a fantastic afternoon of putting what they had learnt about the Ancient Olympics into practice. It has to be the best way to learn!"
