In geography this week we located Greece on a world map.  In history We learnt about the achievements of the Greek’s and their influence on the western world. Did you know the Olympics began in Olympia in Greece?

Greece is in southern Europe. Greece is bordered by Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey. If you were looking at a chronological timeline the Olympics took place after the Iron Age but before the Romans. They began 2,700 years ago in 776BC  (500 years before Christ was born)
