Our learning journey for this half term is the Groovy Greeks. Our writing tasks will include writing diary entries as a Greek hero or heroine, creating wanted posters for a Greek creature, Greek myth story writing, holiday leaflets to Greece and much more.
We had a super first day back in school and spent time together painting large Greek Gods and Goddesses, creating our own Greek vase designs, writing our names using the Greek alphabet and making our own Greek headdresses.
Greek Heroes and Heroines
We read the story of Hercules and the twelve tasks he had to complete. We then discussed what qualities a hero or heroine needs. We discussed real life heroes from today like firemen, policemen and vets. We labelled images of a Greek hero with expanded noun phrases, choosing two adjectives and then put these into sentences. Below are some examples of our writing.
Greek Mythological Creatures
After reading the story of Hercules, we thought about some of the creatures he had to defeat and labelled then with pairs of adjectives. We then used these in our sentences to write a description of them.
