Last Friday we decided to find out more about the types of food eaten in Ancient Greece. We enjoyed a tasting session and we were all very brave as we all tried all of the different foods. Badgers enjoyed tasting grapes, figs, feta cheese, olives and honey. We found we liked some foods more than others and some of us were unsure of the olives and figs. We giggled at the funny faces we pulled when we didn’t like the taste of something.
The Owl class also did some Greek cooking and they made a lentil soup and a Greek salad. They also made some honey cakes which they shared with all of the children in school.
This is what the children said :
Year 2: I really didn’t like the figs.
Year 3: I learned they only ate simple foods.
Year 4: They only ate food that they had grown or produced from animals.
Year 5: Greek salad was really tasty and delicious and healthy. Even though some of us didn’t like the olives.
Year 6: It was really interesting to find out what they ate all those years ago.
