Titanic Drama Day Definitely Didn’t give us a Sinking Feeling!

Monday was the start of a busy & exciting week in HMS Astute; year 5 was whisked back to 1912 as they embarked upon a whole day of drama based around the story of Titanic. We worked with Rachel, our director for the day from One Day Creative, who came into school to lead us through our titanic performance! The children looked fabulous in their period costumes and threw themselves into role. The day culminated in a 15 minute performance for parents and the rest of the school. Well done Year 5; you were amazing!

by Jack Curtis! :)


Our Greek day was marvelous we had an  Athenian soldier come in called  Mikonos the Bard who had plenty in stock for us.


In the morning we got to meet Mikonos the Bard, who was going to teach us all about Greece and Greeks. First we did a really confusing puzzle, we had to make a square out of loads of weird shapes. After that we had a break from it. Next we had a sheet that had 36 questions on it. We had to answer all of them, the answers where on a board that where scattered across the tables I got 34 out of 36. After a while we played an awesome game called Petteia, I lost all my games. Next we had our Banquet, I have one word for Greek food . HORRIBLE !!! After that we saw Mikonos in his Armour, he looked cool. We got to weir his Bronze Helmet. Next we learnt how to fire a slingshot I was very good. After that we had our mini Olympics Athens V Sparta I was Sparta I won! We had to throw a Hula Hoop over a chair. After that we did Javelin with two foam rockets. Next we acted out Jason and the Golden Fleece. the Greek day was awesome!!!

Our Greek day was marvelous an Athenian soldier  named Mikonos the Bard came in to do some awesome things with us starting with a long , interesting talk about the wars between the Persian and the Greeks. Following that we had to work out some of  Archimedes’ puzzles in groups it was fun. Next we had break  but it was not very long. After break there were some boards set around the classroom which we used to answer some quiz questions . Next we played petteia a Greek chess like game which I was very good at. Then it was lunch we ate our small packed lunches and dug into our Greek banquet of pitta,  Grapes, and dips. Next we met up with Mikonos in the hall to see Greek armor and formations. Finally we re acted Jason and the golden fleece to finish our . Thank you Mikonos!


Year 5 had the most amazing day on Friday, when a REAL [sort of] Greek soldier came in, as well as the most delicious Greek banquet EVER! First, the Athenian soldier, Mikionos the Bard, gave us a quick history of Greece, and handed us some puzzles to solve made up of triangles. After that, we used information boards to complete a quiz, and played Petteia which was a bit like chess. For lunch we had our Greek banquet. We had pitta bread, humus, olives, and all kinds of other food. Next, we wore helmets, held shields, and tested out a sling shot! [not with real ammo]. Then, we had a mini Olympic games, with a hoop toss and javelin throw. The teams were Athens v Sparta, and Sparta won!!! In our year 5 Greek day the fun never ended!!!

Year 5 Go Greek For The Day!

What an action-packed, fun-filled, exciting day we had on Friday in Year 5; Mikonos, the Bard, came to spend the whole day with us, leading us through the most exhilarating Greek day you could imagine! From a brief history of the wars between Sparta and Greece, to trying on their armour and learning the soldier’s drill, we never stopped! Puzzling over Archimedes’s Squares, searching for answers in the information-packed quiz, playing Petteia (a Greek strategy game like chess) with a partner- and that was just the morning!
A Greek banquet followed at lunchtime with the most delicious, mouth-watering dishes brought in by everyone to share, including a scrumptious BAKLAVA, lip-smacking GALAKTOBOUREKO; not to mention homemade tzatziki & houmous! Thank you to everyone for providing the food.
The afternoon resumed with a face-to-face encounter with a Greek soldier, dressed in full battle armour, which we all got to try. We each learnt how to throw a sling shot. Mrs Marsh clearly needed a little more training in this, whereas Mrs Yeldon had quite possibly been a Greek soldier in a former life as she could sling the “shot” skilfully to the other end of the hall; as could a number of other “trainee” soldiers in year 5!
After a very noisy & enthusiastic mini Olympic games, the day was rounded off with a retelling of Jason & the Golden Fleece; a myth, in which everyone in the class got to play a part; what a budding troupe of young actors we have! An excellent performance!
History was definitely brought to life at Titchfield on Friday. The children were a credit to the school and Mikonos commented how it had been a real pleasure to work with such enthusiastic and well-behaved children. We had the most fab-u-lous day! I’m sure those memories will stick with us for a long time. Well done, Year 5!
Check out some of the photos from the day and tell us what you think!
