Today we are reading The Minotaur Poem on Zoom.  After looking at the audience and purpose of the poem, we will be discussing whether we think the Minotaur is a monster or a victim.  You will need to write your answer, using evidence from the poem to support.


Think back to yesterday’s lesson, who is your favourite Greek God?  You will be writing your own poem this week (do not start it today) – it can be about your favourite Greek God, or perhaps one you wish to research further.  Please remember, we have learnt about figurative language this week, so your poem should be jam-packed with exciting vocabulary.  So, today, you will spend your session making notes about your Greek God, maybe have a think, do you want your poem to rhyme? Attach your notes to your portfolio.


We are so excited to welcome a visitor to today’s history lesson. This visitor normally comes in to school to kick start our learning about the Ancient Greeks, but we have managed to invite our visitor to join us virtually.

It is important ALL children join this zoom as this session will provide us with so much knowledge about the Ancient Greeks.
