Ancient Greek Course

These courses have been developed by Dr Lorna Robinson.

The Democracy game and theatre activity were created by Graham Kirby.

We are currently piloting an introduction to ancient Greek language and culture on the school literacy curriculum for year sixes in east Oxford primary schools. Below you can find the lesson plans we are using, along with the accompanying resources. The sessions are designed to last approximately one hour, and are aimed at large, mixed ability classes.

The lessons are designed to bring out the connections between Greek and English, to introduce the children to an exciting new alphabet, and to demonstrate the many rich and fundamental connections between ancient Greece and the modern world. Please feel welcome to use these in your lessons, and any feedback or questions are very welcome!
