Poetry in the form of an ode, narrative (additional chapter and own-version narrative)
Overview and Outcomes:
This 4 week planning sequence takes children on an adventure through the discovery of a sword, tied to which is an ancient-looking scroll, to writing an ode,
exploring character and setting development, and then writing an own version narrative chapter. Following Reading for Research into Greek Gods, the children will complete the sequence by writing an extended narrative in role as an invented demi-god.
Synopsis of Text:
I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. Now I spend my time battling monsters and generally trying to stay alive.
This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.
