We have incorporated Classical Conversations into our lessons this year and so far the girls have really enjoyed it.
Their favourite aspect of the memorisation work has been the songs - they have made up actions to a couple of the songs and wanted to share them.
Zeus - holding a lighting bolt
Hera - hands fan out like a peacock tail (her sacred animal)
Ares - fists fighting (god of war)
Aphrodite - tapping heart (love)
Artemis - shooting a bow and arrow (goddess of the hunt and maidens)
Hermes - winged shoes
They also made up a second verse with actions to the Greek Roman Gods.
Hades - stab to the heart (god of the underworld/death)
Poseidon - wave action (god of the sea)
Helios - big circle (sun god)
Hephaestus - hammering action (god of blacksmith, metalwork and fire)
Athena - opening a book (goddess of wisdom)
Selene - crescent moon shape (goddess of the moon)
