Autumn 2 2021 - How Civilised!


We are very lucky to have received a letter from CBBC inviting us to send in an audition tape for a new quiz show (apparently positioned somewhere between Horrible Histories Gory Games and Top of the Class) with the working title It's All Greek to Me, which will focus on quizzing its participants' knowledge of ancient civilisations - in particular the civilisations of Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece and the Mayans.


In order to take part, Year 5 and 6 will need to study and conduct research into these three cultures. They will have the rest of the term to conduct their studies before we film their audition tapes in the last week of term.


Here is the letter we received from CBBC:

Over the course of the half term, Years 5 and 6 learned about various aspects of life in the Ancient Egyptian, Ancient Greek and Mayan civilisations - we studied food, religion, children's lives, slaves and slavery to name but a few - all our work leading up to our audition tapes for the BBC.
