15.01.24 - Focus on Literacy!

Year 4 have started our new literacy topic focused around Greek Mythology. The children have been focusing on the story of Theseus and the Minotaur. We have spent time learning the story through "S plans" and the children particularly enjoyed our drama session where we performed different parts of the story.  We have now begun to think about developing our descriptive writing around mythical characters. The children thought carefully about using expanded noun phrases to describe the different features of the Minotaur, and they have now innovated and described their own character for the story!
