Classics Learning in Lockdown

Lockdown is an ideal time to further your Classics knowledge! In our lessons, students have been discovering the ancient world through videos, virtual tours and object study.

Year 9 have been getting to grips with the Spartans and the Battle of Thermopylae. Toby S made a superb video on Spartan education:

Year 10 have been looking at myth and religion; tales of gods and heroes. Was Hercules really a worthy demi-god? Year 11 are learning about Alexander the Great, and L6 are delving into Socratic philosophy!

If you fancy developing your own Classical skills, do check out the British Museum online or download Stephen Fry's audiobook "Mythos". There's a whole world to explore....
