Year 5 were given a homework project to design and make a Greek hoplite. A hoplite was fighting soldier who formed the ranks of the Greek army. They marched in unison in a “phalanx.” Year 5 were given the challenge of making their hoplite model from any resources and materials they had at home. Our models have been made from clay, Lego, fimo modelling material, textiles, cake icing and biscuit! We were really creative and resourceful!
