Week beginning 8 Mar
I hope that you all enjoyed the activities for World Book Day last week in Literacy.
This week we are returning to our myths and on Friday you will be using the planning booklet and the mythical creature you created, from the last week in February, to help you to write your own myth.
We have already seen some excellent work and we can't wait to read your finished myths.
Have a go at writing your own Greek myth. I have given you a planner to remember what way your story should progress. Remember to take a new paragraph for each new part of the story and to use capital letters and full stops. Please check spelling too.
For writing the Greek myth you are trying to write your own adventure story.
Think back through all of the Greek myths that you have read during these weeks. Using the poster as a guide you need to work through the story.
The introduction or start of the story is when you tell your reader where the story is taking place and who your hero is. You might also want to describe what the problem is or to put that into the second paragraph. In the second paragraph you will tell your reader what the quest or journey is that your hero will go on. What do they have to do and why?
In the third paragraph you will describe how the hero will meet someone or some how will be given a gift or special powers that will help on the quest. Then you describe a bit more about the journey and the mythical beast that they meet. How will it be defeated?
In the fourth paragraph there will be a battle with the monster and you explain how the hero wins.
In the last paragraph you are ending your story explaining if the original problem at the beginning is fixed or not and is the quest finished or not?
Just have a go. It's just for fun. Let your imagination run riot!
