collection of the classic Greek Myths, which have been simplified very well making them perfect for use within the primary classroom.I have recently used this book as impetus for the Year 5 topic on Ancient Greece and we particularly focused on the myths In The Beginning and Pandora s Box , Theseus and the Minotaur and The Wooden Horse.Although mainly used as inspiration for English lessons, we used the story of In The Beginning and Pandora s Box for a hook into our art lessons, where children were looking at developing their use of different medias and in this instance, sketching with pencils and using watercolours Using calligrams, images and colours, children recreated their own version of the spirits exiting Pandora s Box based on their own emotion or theme of choice.In English lessons, we used Theseus and the Minotaur for a plethora of activities Through hot seating children got a greater understanding of characters emotions in the myth, which then enabled them to have a go at writing their own diary entry from Pandora s perspective On World Book Day, the Year 5 s then had a go at retelling the story through drama and freeze frames We also used the setting descriptions in the text and the intricate illustrations as a basis for the children to write and up level their own descriptive settings The class then used these examples of myths to plan and write their own, step by step, based on the style of writing in this book During this process we also used speech from the text to look at how to write reporting clauses and we identified different ways to start sentences through a dice game.I then used The Wooden Horse to get children to look at the features of newspaper reports They then used hot seating so the children could collect witness evidence for their own newspaper reports, based on the events in this myth.All in all, a wonderful book that has many possibilities for use in the classroom I was reading it for research when it comes to writing myths for children and I really wanted to enjoy this, but in the second paragraph we get the first inaccuracy and then there s at least 34after it I counted, I m bitter that I caught it s beautifully illustrated though super white washed for these brown characters and from the beginning it mixes up the Greek and Roman names for the gods, as well as simply changing the stories for certain characters.I definitely learnt a lot about I was reading it for research when it comes to writing myths for children and I really wanted to enjoy this, but in the second paragraph we get the first
