KS2 Greeks: Home Learning Resources

Are your children studying Key Stage 2 Ancient Greeks at school? We've turned our KS2 pack for school visits into an online resource to help you support your children as they learn at home.

We know it isn't always possible to visit our Cast Gallery, so instead you can use these downloadable home learning packs to explore our Museum from afar - with no need to venture out of the house.

Using our KS2 Ancient Greek resources, you can explore the following Greek Sculpture topics:

  • Be amazed by our colourful painted Peplos Kore and think about the effects of paint
  • Meet some of the Greek Gods and Goddesses - and learn how to tell them apart
  • Find out more about ancient athletics - and how competitive the Greeks were
  • Talking of competition, find out more about war and how much the Greeks liked to fight
  • Learn about the famous hero, Hercules (or, as the Greeks called him, Herakles)

Learning about the Ancient Greeks is easy. You will need the following:

  • Our online resources: click below to download the pdf version
  • Some paper and a pencil to write down your answers
