The Trojan War

Almost 3000 years ago, the Trojans and Greeks fought a long and terrible war. Why? Because the Trojans had captured a beautiful Greek princess Helen.
'Helen' did not mean to cause trouble - she was bewitched by the gods.
The Greeks fought a battle with Troy but could not get inside the tall strong walls around the city.

In the end the war lasted for TEN YEARS!

They tried everything but it began to look like the Greeks would not win the war.
Menelaus and Paris fight it out - 'man to man'.

So the Greeks thought that if they could not win the battle with their physical strength then they should win it with their brains. Odysseus thought of a smart trick.
The Greeks sneak in to Troy inside the wooden horse.

Well done everyone - what a fantastic show.
