Year 3 – Literacy – Red group

Year 3 have been learning all about ‘Myths and Legends’ the last two weeks in literacy. In each of the myths there has been a mythical beast. Yesterday we created our own mythical beasts thinking about: What will it’s magical power be? What noise will it make? What will it look like? Will it be tall? Will it be male or female? Where will it live?

After planning and sketching out a rough idea of what we wanted our own mythical beasts to look like, this is what we created:
