To aspire to being outstanding in everything we do by always aiming higher.

"Let your light shine in all you say and do" Matthew 5:16



Our learning this week in English is about Ancient Greece. This week, the children will explore Greek Gods, Greek myths and Greek monsters leading up to writing their own monster vs. hero fight scene.


Research Greek monsters here:

List of Greek Mythological Creatures and Monsters • Facts & Information (


Write down facts about your three favourites. Have a quick look at the extract from ‘Myth Match: A Fantastical Flipbook of Extraordinary Beasts’ here:

Based on this, create your own Greek monster hybrid, such as a ‘Chimarion’ a mixture of a Chimaera and Arion. Draw a picture of your Greek monster and label its features. If you need some help with the layout, have a look at the ‘Monsterology’ extract here:
