Year 5 and The Trojan Horse

This week in our History lessons, we learnt about the Trojan War. The children freeze framed different parts of the story.

We learnt about how the war started with Prince Paris stealing the beautiful Helen from her husband Melanus.

This war went on for 10 long years. Until the Greeks came up with a plan. They would sail away from Troy, leaving a wooden horse as a gift.

Inside this gift, were many Greek soldiers. When darkness fell, they climbed out of the horse and killed the citizens of Troy.

The Greeks won the war!
