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!
