They had the opportunity to try olives, grilled halloumi, gyros, tzatziki and baklava - which all received mixed reviews.

In classes the children focused on a range of things such as the flag in early years, Olympics in KS1 and the language and customs in KS2. The Year 4s even managed to translate the school’s Christian core values into Greek.

They also enlisted the help of Erin H Dance and Fitness to teach each class a traditional Greek dance, with performances at the end of the day.
