The report features an introduction (setting the scene), a paragraph and a fact box for each of the Gods under a subheading, a conclusion to summarise the report a glossary for technical vocabulary.

The WAGOLL includes examples of key objectives from the Years 4/5 curriculum (relative clauses, parenthesis, expanded noun phrases, modal verbs, fronted abverbials, apostrophes) and also features a few Alan Peat exciting sentences.
Who were the Greek Gods? (Whole Lesson)

It is an effective way to getting students to link actions people took to religion. This is especially beneficial when studying Homer's Odyssey, Iliad or Greek Tragedies.
Who were the deities worshipped by the ancient Greeks? And what is their relevance today?
