Film your characters in action by taking shots, then moving the characters/scenery for the next scene.



Make your own animated version of the story. Use card/modelling materials or building blocks ( Lego) to construct the scenes and the characters.

This week we will be learning all about the Greek Gods and Goddesses. They play pivotal roles in all the Greek myths that we have read so far. 

Find out as much as you can about the Gods and Goddesses from the fact files, then create a set of top trumps about each of the gods.

On the back of each card write an interesting fact that you have found out about the god or goddess.
