TRADITIONAL loose fitting tunics known as chitons and laurel wreaths were the dress code for the day at Tydd St Mary Primary School on Monday when pupils had a taste of life in ancient Greece.

The youngsters have been studying the Olympics in preparation for the 2012 games in Britain and have learned a little of their origins in Greece.

Everything was Greek for Monday’s activity day from making pots to writing on wax tablets.

Headteacher Sonya Ripley said the day was funded by the PTA.

Most of the costumes were made in school but parents made some as well.
