At the moment, year 5 have been exploring Greek Myths. So far, we really enjoying hearing about the Greek gods and mythical creatures. This week we have focused on a myth about King Midas. The King comes across a satyr (half man, half horse) in the fields and the satyr grants him one wish. We performed this myth but we each changed the wish to something we would have wished for.
After our performances, we wrote our own versions of the myth.
Ebony wrote ‘During the gentle breeze, King Midas was walking alongside the wide lake which was calm and crystal clear.’
Brennan wrote ‘One warm morning, King Midas was wondering in the enchanted forest as the horizon was aflame with the rising sun.’
