Year 3 - Greek myths | Independent Primary School Buckinghamshire

Year 3 - Greek myths

Over the past few weeks, Year 3 have been enthralled, listening to and recreating mythical tales from Ancient Greece, including Pandora’s Box, Theseus and the Minotaur and the Trojan Horse.

These myths have inspired the children to write their own, complete with heroes, magical objects, quests, Gods and mythical beasts.

Prowling around the classroom and lurking in the corners we have found:

‘The Wolf Queen’

The Wolf Queen had the naked upper torso of a beautiful woman, then downwards from that she had a wolf’s body and instead of shoulder blades she had huge Raven wings!


‘The Voldraco’

This terrible creature had a thick coat of maroon fur, the back legs of a horse, the head of a dragon and the body of a massive gorilla with muscles that can break steel!

He heard a wild roar and thundering footsteps coming closer. A horrifying creature emerged from the corner, blood dripping from its mouth.

Be afraid, be very afraid to enter the Year 3 classrooms!
