Persuasive Writing: Ancient Greeks (Theseus and the Minotaur)

(0)
A task-setting powerpoint to guide the children through writing persuasive letters to Theseus as either the King of Athens or Princess Ariadne. I used this with a mixed 3/4 class and the letters featured were written by some of the more able students. Includes features of a persuasive text and the planning with objectives from the 2014 Year 4 English Curriculum. Thanks for looking!

Recount Writing Roman Celt Boudicca Rebellion

(2)
This powerpoint guides the children through writing a recount from the perspective of a Celt warrior. Some additional teaching may be required on the rebellion, although the BBC link is very helpful: http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/primaryhistory/romans/rebellion/ This resource lists the features of a recount and provides a short example for text-marking opportunities.

Tudors: Make Me a Monarch! (Persuasive Writing)

Tudors: Make Me a Monarch! (Persuasive Writing)

(0)
This lesson requires the pupils to fill in an application form to become a Tudor Monarch. The planning and task-setting powerpoint are included, and give examples of interests and skills of the monarchs, as well as a few instruments and sports of the time. I taught this lesson to a mixed 3/4 class during History, but after they had already looked at persuasive writing. This isn't essential, but there are a list of logical connectives for the more able children to use. Thanks for looking!

Ancient Greeks Recount Writing (Dionysus or Ariadne)

(0)
This lesson can be used in either English or Topic when learning about Ancient Greece or myths. Once children have learned about Theseus and the Minotaur, this lesson guides the children through what happened next using weblinks for Mr Donn. The children write a recount from either the perspective of Dionysus (and the pirates) or Ariadne (being deserted on the island) up to when Dionysus finds Ariadne and asks her to marry him.

Ancient Greek Monster Masks and Temples

(4)
In our Art lessons when studying the Ancient Greeks, we made Greek temples using art straws on black paper and Greek masks using paper plates. These were the files I showed the children to inspire their ideas. The masks were based around the mythological creatures. The children loved making both. Thanks for looking!

Ancient Greek Mythical Monster Report

Ancient Greek Mythical Monster Report

(1)
We used this lesson to write non-chronological reports about Greek monsters. Children choose which monsters they want to research and must find out five facts about each one. My lowest ability only managed two monsters in the time, whereas the top ability could find out, and draw very detailed sketches of, four monsters. The children drew their creatures on plain A6 paper and then cut around them and stuck them onto their reports. (Some additional teaching will be required on note-taking and then turning those notes back into paragraphs) Thanks for looking!

Ancient Greeks Non-Fiction Revision

4 Resources
These are the resources I used at the end of the year in my Topic lessons to revise non-fiction text types before the tests. Make sure the persuasion text lesson is taught before the recount lesson. If looking for inspiration, for discussion texts I asked the children to write about whether it was better to grow up in Athens or Sparta, but I used a resource by someone else. Thanks for looking!

This powerpoint guides children through writing their own instructions. First, there is a list of features, then the class use these features to text mark the example (How to make a paper plate mask). Children are then given a few minutes to make their own Olympic torches before they write instructions for them. The lesson concludes with text-marking an example. Thanks for looking!
