Class 10

Dear Parents and Carers,

Here is an overview of tasks we’d like children to complete at home over the coming week. We are committed to making sure that your child is still learning as much as possible and endeavour to do our best to keep this happening.

Warmest regards, The Cathedral School Team

Summer Holiday Tasks for Upper School 

In preparation for the Autumn Term, here are some holiday tasks that you might like to complete to give you a taste for our learning.


  • Find ten funky facts about the Ancient Greeks using the internet or books. Funky facts are facts that you think no one else will know.


  • Find out about different materials that the Ancient Greeks used. What did materials they use to make their clothes? What materials did they use to make their cooking utensils? What materials did they use to build their houses?



  • Find and listen to a piece of Ancient Greek music. What do you notice about the rhythm and tempo? What instruments can you hear? When do you think the Ancient Greeks listened to music?

Extra! Extra!

If you would like to go further, see if you can taste some Greek food.
