A Greek Democracy

As part of our Greek learning, we found out that the ancient Greeks invented the idea of a democracy. We found out on Monday that Zeus and Hera have stepped down as King and Queen of the Greek gods. The other gods therefore started their political campaigns to become the new monarchs. The children formed teams to create speeches, posters and merchandise to encourage voters. Year 2 joined us for a fabulous afternoon today to watch the speeches and learn about the gods. They voted and chose Poseidon and Aphrodite to be the new King and Queen.
