Aim: to retell a Greek Myth
The Daedalus and Icarus Myth
Read one of the attached versions of the Icarus myth. I will also upload a video version for you to watch.
What is a myth? If you have forgotten I will upload a poster to remind you of the key elements.
Have a go at retelling it to see if you remember it. A good way to do this is to time yourself - give yourself 2 minutes to retell it. Then reduce your time to 1 minute, then 30 seconds. It forces you to edit the story and only retell the most important bits!
IF you are really struggling to remember the story, why not do a quick 'text map' (see picture below) to help you recall the key events in order. These are quick picture versions of the story.
Writing task choice. Choose ONE of these options to complete today:

2 - Rewrite the story (two pages maximum is plenty)
