Magical Myths

28 April 2016

Year three have enjoyed exploring Greek myths.  We have had lots of fun reading, watching and re-enacting several stories, looking closely at the characters and themes in each.  Did you know that every myth has a hero and a villain? And usually there is a huge bloody battle?  Also, there is often a woman who people fall in love with. This is often the cause of the problem or dilemma in the story.

When we read each story we try to decipher the message.  Pandora was told not to open the box but she was sooooooooo curious about what was inside that she released a black cloud of badness, sadness, sickness and death into the world.  The moral of this story is to follow instructions and to keep your word.  Theseus and the Minotaur also has the same message. In his haste to leave Adriadne on the island Theseus forgot to change the sails and so his father thought he was dead! Similarly, Icarus did not follow his father's advice and flew too close to the sun.

Next week we will plan and write our own quest.  What will your cheaters be like? Will you have a battle? What will be the message in your story?
Check out moodle for lots of Greek myths if you would like some story inspiration!
