Myths and Legends

Just finished using parts of this pack. The children loved retelling some of the myths and legends using the comic strips. Superb pack which enabled the children to create their own success criteria using the checklists. Thank you

I have just used some of the activity sheets with my Year 5 English class. They loved completing the quiz, cartoon & writing activities and the guide.
Thank you for this wonderful resource.

We used this pack for our Library Summer Reading Program and it saved us so much time searching for different images and activities, it had everything we needed in a great little package. Thank you 🙂

Excellent Myths & Legends Resource

A really useful pack for teaching Myths and Legends. The writing checklists are particularly helpful for target setting and toolkits - as both the teacher and children can see what they need to achieve by the end of the unit. It is also great that the countries of origin are given, so if you were teaching Greek mythology for example, you can select the appropriate myths.
Thank you!

Awesome Myths and Legends

I used your myths and legends pack during the written expression lesson and my students loved it. We used the plan and checklist as well as the power point presentation. It was a success. Your packs are absolutely fantastic!

What a pleasure

I was so impressed with this pack. The overall simplicity made for easy learning and understanding, and the visuals are brilliant. The power point presentation was enjoyed by all grade from 4 - 7 and the story collection had something for everyone. The different storyboards provided allowed me to use the pack over 4 grades. Thank you very much for a well thought out and well constructed theme.

Myths and Legends

I teach English in a special needs secondary school. We do follow the national curriculum, but adapt it to the needs of our students. We do a 'Greek Myths' project with our year 7s, plus an 'Opening to a story' unit, so I have found parts of the Myths and Legends pack really useful for both topics. The way the stories are told in a cartoon strip with pictures is ideal for our students, and I will use the story dice to help students create a simple myth of their own. I will be able to use some of the other Myths and Legends materials for our cultural diversity topics. I like the simple format and lovely cartoons and pictures. Thank you.

Myths and Legends

I have a confession to make. I wasn't actually expecting to use the Myths and Legends pack much. I expected that it would mainly be useful for when we, you know, teach Myths and Legends - and in our school, that's a Year3 topic, and I'm now a Year 4 teacher.

But when I downloaded the pack and looked through it - well, I have to take my hat off to you. There are SUCH a lot of wonderful things in there, such a lot of great stories, and such beautiful cartoons and illustrations. It's way beyond what I expected. Well done! I shall certainly be using this pack a lot more than I thought I would.

This week we're doing Book Week, with a theme of "Storytelling from around the world". So I think the first thing I shall do is print off these stories, put the children into groups, and have them read them to each other!

Many thanks!
