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.
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!
