Today's lesson will focus on planning their own myth.
First, watch this clip to remind ourselves of the myth: Theseus and the Minotaur . This will remind your child of the myth they read last week. It will also help them with their work today, to give them inspiration for planning their own myth. When watching this, ask your child to think about and verbally identify the following things: who was the main character? Which other characters were involved? Who was the beast? What was the problem? What weapon was used? Who was successful?
Secondly, open up the PowerPoint or PDF version below for the teaching/lesson slides and instructions for their main task.
Finally, complete the tasks set on the PPT. Your child can jot their plan down in their notebook or they can type it up (whichever they find easier).
