Achievement for all in a community that cares


Day 2

We are going to be using Greek Myths as the basis for quite a lot of our English activities this term.

Myths are stories that people told to help them understand the world, how it and the things in it were created and to explain the many things or events that we experience.

These stories were usually about gods and goddesses and often had fantastical creatures in them.
