Greek Myths

This week in year 5 we are immersing ourselves into the myth of Perseus and the Gorgon Medusa. 

We have been doing this by sorting the text, analysing it by paragraps to determine the purpose of each and also (which has been the most enjoyable) performing sections of the story.

Year 5 were extremely creative and did a fantastic job of performing and creating numerous props in a small amount of time.

They all confidently confirmed that by the end they had a more thorough understanding of both the myth and the characters. 

This is enabling us to use our understanding of the myth of Perseus and Medusa to start to write our own myths next week.
