In the Groundbreaking Greeks project, your child will explore key periods of Greek history, from early civilisations to the Archaic and Classical periods. They'll learn about the influence of geography on city-states and Athenian society, while discovering the significance of Greek art, culture, and philosophy. From Alexander the Great to Greece's role in the Roman Empire, they'll uncover the lasting legacy of ancient Greece and its impact on today's world.
