Greek Myths Masterclass at St Mary's Catholic Primary School

Last Wednesday, Clifton High’s Classics Department visited St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Bradley Stoke to deliver a ‘Greek Myths’ masterclass to Year 5 children.

Thirty children in Year 5 enjoyed learning about the Ancient Greek myth of Perseus and Medusa in which Perseus sets out to defeat the terrifying Medusa, who can turn any man into stone.

The children then had the opportunity to devise their own plays based on the myth, dressing up as Greek gods, heroes and monsters to bring their plays to life. The final performances displayed energy, creativity and captured the style of Greek myths excellently.
