L.O. Write my own Greek myth.

Task: Using your plan from yesterday, write a short narrative myth about Alice in Ancient Greece (and your mythical creature). Don’t forget to give your story a title. Use the template if you think it will help! (resource)

For example (medium challenge):

Paragraph 1: Talk about setting, the hero and the dilemma/problem they are facing

Paragraph 2: Talk about the hero’s journey (their quest), including who helps them along the way, and how they meet the evil mythical creature

Paragraph 3: What happens with the creature? How does your myth end?

This is your last writing before you come back to school so Miss GP, Miss Stewart and I look forward to receiving good pieces of writing.

Remember to join up handwriting, punctuate sentences, use paragraphs and interesting vocabulary (adjectives, adverbs, time connectives, expanded noun phrases).

Reading/Topic

Independent Task L.O. Design a card game and a poster.

Activity 1

Have you played a card game such as Pokémon when you have to check the numbers of your card to compare them with the numbers on your opponent’s card? Whoever has the biggest number wins. Now you can make your own card game with mythical creatures.

Make cards with the mythical creatures we have talked about so far (minotaur, centaur, medusa, chimera, Pegasus, cyclops). See the resource to help you come up with ideas. When you have finished with the cards, cut them out and then invite someone from your family to play with you. Have fun!

Activity 2
Your mythical creature is in Cambridge! You need to design a missing poster to inform the people in Cambridge (example resource).

Activity 3
Have fun with the wordsearch with Greek mythical creatures!

L.O. Practise the Year 3,4 spellings.

Practise the following spellings:
possible

question

sentence
special

After you have practised spelling these words can you use them in sentences?
e.g. This is probably the best sentence you have written so far.

Kind regards,
