Good morning Year 3!
Yeah, it's the start of our new topic, Gods and Mortals! Throughout the next half-term, we will be learning about the Greek Gods. We will be doing this by reading different stories of Myths and Legends, watch videos and create different arts and crafts. It's going to be fun!
Below is a video called, I am Zeus! The video explains who the Greek Gods are, as well as where they came from. It is the first part of Greek Mythology we will be studying.
Did you enjoy watching and listening to the myth about how the gods were created and how Rhea tricked Cronos into eating rocks and stones instead of their son Zeus?
Discuss the story. What did you enjoy about it? What did you learn from it? Did you already know the story of the Greek Gods? Did you learn anything new? Are the names mentioned in the video familiar to you?
Moving on. Comprehension activity:
The next video is a teaching video. We will discuss what myths and legends are, the vocabulary you would usually read while learning about Greek Mythology, and then read the information of three Gods and their power. You will be given Q sheet to answer to show understanding of the text.
I have also uploaded a video of myself reading the information cards on the Greek Gods out loud, in case you are finding some of the reading challenging.
I look forward to seeing you completed comprehension task.
