Theseus and the Minotaur

This week, the Upper Juniors have been re-writing and upleveling the myth ‘Theseus and the Minotaur’. Amy created a fantastic version which I want to share with you all, particularly year five and six as it might inspire you for your myth writing next week. Well done Amy!

Climbing confidently out of the boat, Theseus started to walk towards the death threatening maze. There were blood stained walls and animals screeching. Theseus wasn’t scared.

Just before entering the one way in, no way out maze, he couldn’t help but to see the most beautiful girl. She had long gleaming hair and sparkling eyes; her name was Ariadne.

The young woman began to wander towards Theseus and said “Here you go, here’s a ball of wool. Hold on to it so you can kill the horrifying minotaur and then find your way out. I’ll be waiting for you!”Theseus took the ball of wall and began his adventure.

As darkness fell, Theseus was almost at the minotaur – he could hear his hungry roar!

    Even though that we wrote our myths a long time ago, I really enjoyed writing them. I think that our homework really helped us because we described our mythical creature and where they live. I wonder if the Lower Juniors will like writing them as much as we did?

    I enjoyed the subject of Theseus and the Minotaur, especially when we made our own Myth up. We did it in Big Write as well as in our English set today. Wonder if we will make our own story in our next topic?

    Theseus and the Minotaur was the most amazing peice of writing I’ve ever done.I was proud of it and I loved seeing all the other peices of writing that Team Hawkill had wrote and they have all wrote amazing peices of writing so far in year five. With the year six’s and all of the upper juniors they have done amazing in all of there peices of writing and I can’t wait to see lots and lots of other pieces of descriptive writing and I can’t wait to look at the key stage one peices of writing and I might look and comment on the other peoples writing and I hope they’ve used so juciey adverbs, verbs, connectives and time connectives as well and As, When and Whilst they are juciey things to start and end with.
