On Thursday and Friday morning last week the whole of year 8 took part in a special cross curricular event working in groups to write and illustrate stories from the Odyssey. The event was planned by Art and Classics departments to combine and further develop the skills used in both subjects. In Classics lessons before the event girls worked in groups on their creative writing and in Art lessons they studied ancient Greek patterns and the black and red figure work seen on pottery.
All of Year 8 will have received a link to a website where they can view the whole yeargroup's work https://sites.google.com/csg.school/year-8-odysseus-project/
