Year 3 draw terrifying monsters like those found in Greek Myths

In Year 3 this term, we have been looking at Ancient Greece and listening to and reading a number of Greek Myths. We started with Pandora’s Box and learnt that sometimes it is better to ignore something than to let our curiosity get the better of us. Theseus and the Minotaur was next, and apart from discovering that the Greeks loved to include terrifying monsters in their stories, we learnt that not all Greek myths have happy endings.

One of the activities we did was called Monster Consequences, which involved each of us drawing a part of a monster and then folding the piece of paper so that the other people in our group could not see it. The results were rather interesting, scary as well as funny as you can see. Needless to say we had lots of fun and we are now using them in our own Greek myths.
