The resources contain real extracts from Homer's 'Iliad' with excellent examples of innovation, plus success criteria, vocabulary definitions, power-point about Homer and much more!
This unit then flows very neatly into a non-fiction genre of Newspaper Reports, with the poetry story content put into the features of an Ancient newspaper recount. Again, with excellent examples and success criteria / tool-kits.
