Literacy: To write a Greek Myth
Badeas And Tadeas
The tranquil village with the illuminating orange sun descending down
over the horizon. Small houses and people roaming around the village
saying their greetings to other fellow villagers. The nicest person in the
village is called Tadeas because he heals the sick with his enchanted
healing swords. Unfortunately, his evil brother, Badeas is really mean and
he blocks the healing sword from healing people with his mighty shield.
Because of their differences they fell out and they haven’t spoken to each
other for years because a farmer had injured cattle, so Tadeas went to
help him but Badeas was there as well. Just as the cattle were about to be
healed, Badeas put the shield in front of his face to stop the animal from
being healed. This made them fall out for real and they became mortal
enemies. Tadeas got really angry at his actions so he went and challenged
him to a battle. “Whoever wins has to join the side of the victor,” said
Tadeas. “I accept your challenge,” said Badeas threateningly.
After training for a few days the word spread around the village that they
were both ready to fight at the town square. It was 3 pm, everyone was
gathered to watch the fight and see who wins. It was a fight without
weapons, the strongest man would win. 30 to 40 minutes into the fight
Tadeas began to get weaker and weaker. Villagers grew sad because now
there would be more harm in this village.
Suddenly..!
Zeus gave Tadeas super strength so he gave one fierce punch in Badeas’
face and knocked him out. Badeas retreated home, with his head in his
hands, and thought about all the bad he has done, and then he remembered
the deal they made. He went back to the town hall and apologised to
everyone. Now he has to help Tadeas heal all the sick people he prevented
him from healing in the past.
Later that evening, they all gathered around, cheered and clapped, had lots
of delicious food and extravagant wine.

These are the things Thomas would put into Pandora's box.

Guess who's turned his photo into an Andy Warhol inspired masterpiece!

 

Another inspirational piece of art, can you guess who this is?

Ella has had a go at Andy Warhol art.

Can you guess who has drawn a self portrait?

Guy's Andy Warhol inspired Hot and Spicy soup can.

Chloe has learned all about Zeus.

Very well organised into sections.

Ella chose Aphrodite to research.

Dexter has also researched Zeus.

Love the pictures and use of bullet points.

Kate has also presented her knowledge of Aphrodite in her non-chronological report.

 

Sofia has chosen a Goddess who isn't well known - Hera.

Guy has also chosen Zeus (he's a very popular God).

Here's Ella testing out her parachute with different objects.

Ella discovered that objects with a greater mass fall faster than lighter objects, despite having the same parachute.

Thomas found that a cup took the longest to hit the ground with his parachute.

Love his explanation linking surface area to air resistance. 

Chloe really loves Little Mix and was very excited to write her Non-chronological report about them. 

Kate's made my day by finding out that Jack Russells is number 4 in the top 10 dog breeds.  I personally think it should be number 1 though!

Freddie has taught me about Penguins - I didn't know that they live to 30 years old or why their feathers are white and black - but I do now.  

Thomas has written his report about South Africa as he's going there on holiday with his family at Christmas!!
