Good Morning Year 5.
Today your task is to write your own version of the story of Theseus and the Minotaur on Purple Mash. If you need to re-cap the story use these resources:
Remind yourself of the story: https://greece.mrdonn.org/theseus.html#:~:text=Prince%20Theseus%20told%20his%20father,Minotaur%20is%20a%20terrible%20monster!&text=Along%20with%20six%20other%20Athenian,Prince%20Theseus%20sailed%20towards%20Crete.T2-H-4116-Theseus-and-the-Minotaur-Story-Powerpoint_ver_4
Write a brief plan on paper. Think about these headings:
– Intro: Why Theseus goes to Crete
– What happens when he arrives
– How does he defeat the Minotaur
– How does he escape/what happens on the island?
– Ending: What happens next
In your plan write bullet points about what you need to include. You may also want to add in any special language or expanded noun phrases you could include.
