In Literacy, we have been discussing the features of myths and legends and how they differ. Our main focus has been to study the Legend of Robin Hood. We have two displays: one inside the classroom showing class work and one outside the classroom showing some of the wonderful homework that the children have completed. (Click on the pictures to see a larger version that you can read.)
We used different sources of evidence to find out information about Robin Hood and whether these suggested if he was real or not. We used our information to write a report titled ‘Robin Hood – fact or fiction?’
We looked at the features of a diary and wrote three diary entries written from the point of view of Robin Hood.
The children wrote a detailed description of a forest setting focusing on using ambitious vocabulary and a range of figurative language.
