In English we have started a unit of work based around the Ancient Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur and we would like the children to continue towards rewriting this story. We will set out the structure in the weekly plan and provide support materials in the links below for each day.
We would encourage children to use the story and the resources available to create their version of the story and we would love to see them as and when we are back in school.
At points we will also post some stand alone SPAG activities for your child.
Week beginning 23.3.20
The aim of this week is that children create their own version of Theseus and the Minotaur accompanied with illustrations.
Fill out the story map with your own story (you can change some details of the story, remember that it is a Greek myth) – you are writing as Theseus.
Write the opening paragraph of your story - use the word/phrase bank to help you start.
Write the rest of the story - using the resources to help.
Edit the story carefully, check spellings with a dictionary, look carefully at grammar and punctuation.
Illustrate your story, with key scenes from the story. Read the story aloud to someone at home and ask for some constructive feedback.
