I can come in many shapes and sizes,

and  I  make funny noises when you use me.

Greek sports by Luke

July 21st, 2011 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Ancient Greeks loved sport and most cities in Ancient Greece had public gymnasiums where people gathered to train and relax. The Greeks believed that a healthy body was very important. Most men and boys practised sports every day because they enjoyed them and wanted to keep fit. Sport was a good preparation for war too. The Greek armies had to be fit enough to march long distances, carrying all their heavy equipment, and then begin the fight with the enemy. The Greeks had four national sports festivals, where athletes from different city states competed against one another. The most important of the sports contests was the Olympic Games. These were played at Olympia, every four years, in honour of Zeus. On the first day of the Olympics, sacrifices of grain, wine, and lambs were made to Zeus. Olympic Games Greece is the home country of the Olympic Games. Olympia, a Greek city, was known to be a very important centre of athletics. The Olympic games, held there every four years, were so important in Greek life that they were used as the basis for the Greek calendar. When was the first ever Olympic Games? The first recorded Ancient Olympic Games were in 776 BC.

Life in Ancient Greece!

Men

In Ancient Greece, men had a much better life than women this is because only men could be full citizens. Only men made the important decisions in life. Normally, men only fought in armies, took part in sports and met in public!

Women

Spartan woman were taught to write, read and learn skillful skills to protect themselves in battle. As well as looking after the home and making clothes, women were expected to look after the home everyday!

Slaves

In nearly every single Greek city women or pssibly men were slaves! Only in the poorest homes were women expected to carry out the jobs by herself. Most homes had female slaves who cooked, cleaned and collected fresh water everyday. Possibly there were male slaves who looked after the home and tutored young, male slaves from the age of 5,6,7!
