Good morning smiley


Today, you are going to PLAN your letter to King Minos as Theseus, after his escape.

What things might you want him to know (eg, how you escaped; what happened to his daughter and about the death of your father)?


Alternatively, you can write another letter to Theseus from Ariadne (Read her first letter to him as you continue to read on).

What might she write to him (she felt betrayed, she loved him and had risked the wrath of her father and he abandoned her on Naxos)? broken heart


You are only going to PLAN what you want to include in your letter and who you are writing the letter to; ready for Big Write tomorrow. 


But BEFORE then, I have a warm up task for you. I have uploaded a letter to King Minos from King Aegeus. The letter has quite a few mistakes so I ask that you read the letter thoroughly and see if you can spot the mistakes, and then write the letter again correctly. Remember to use your best handwriting. wink


I have also uploaded some useful videos and materials as a guide to support your home learning.
