Year 5 – Trojan Horse

4 December 2020

Last week, while working from home, Year 5 were asked to create their own Trojan horse as part of their study on Ancient Greece.


The Trojan Horse is a story from the Trojan War about the subterfuge that the Greeks used to enter the independent city of Troy and win the war. In the canonical version, after a fruitless 10-year siege, the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse and hid a select force of men inside, including Odysseus.


Year 5 constructed their horses from various materials including lego and marshmallows (including gummy bear Greeks).
