Yesterday in English, UKS2 took the field in a role playing event like no other. In order to inspire their upcoming historical narrative based on the Battle of Marathon, the children took turns in becoming the Athenians and Persians in their version of the empire defining battle. Using the tactics that really happened in Marathon, the children then began to develop their emotive understanding of the battle, by generating quotes of what they felt, smelt, saw and heard. Finally, they returned to the classroom to generate more ideas on sugar paper that will inspire their writing.
