21/04/20 - Mythical Beasts and where to find them

This terms task involves Greek heroes like Perseus and Theseus, monsters such as The Minotaur and Medusa, and Gods from Ancient Greece, Zeus and Poseidon.

Click here to find out a bit more about some of them.

We will be looking at describing the monsters and heroes, creating our own and working on our own myths or retelling one you are familiar with.

Below is a link telling the story of Theseus. It is simply done and maybe you could recreate it or role play it (lego, plastercine, toys, shadow puppets)

The stories of Perseus and Theseus are attached below.

Your first main task is to have a go at describing the monsters. I have helped by doing the first one. You need to create a list of descriptions rather than writing sentences. I have included examples of metaphors, similes, and expanded noun phrases as well as Year 3 spelling words you need to add somewhere in your descriptions. Use the pictures and links to help as well as the stories below.
