I’ve been really impressed with the drama work that you produced during our work on Theseus and the Minotaur. Miss Cross and I have both enjoyed watching what you have created. I wanted to share some of the pictures with you.
You finished the week by writing a brilliant class poem that I would like to record and add to the blog but for now we will have to make do with the written version.
The Walls Whisper.
Beware what lies ahead
Because you might become dead.
Going in you will see bones and skeletons beneath thee
If you come out you will see King Minos angry, so you must flee.
Blood splattered everywhere,
I don’t like it in the air.
Skeletons, skeletons covered in blood scattered around without a care,
Screaming and shouting everywhere!
Shattered bones falling all around,
Hear them creak, what a sound.
The cracked bones of people that have been burst,
Even the spattered blood that had been cursed.
Beaten skulls scattered all around,
Hearing people’s heart beats pound.
Blood splattered screams through the labyrinth,
Fast heart beats as the children crawl.
You see the sleeping minotaur,
Don’t wake him up he won’t ignore.
I feel green!
The minotaur is so mean.
The minotaur is extremely ashamed,
It’s the king who is truly to be blamed.
Innocent children go to the blood splattered labyrinth every single day,
When Theseus defeated the minotaur the children shouted “HURRAY!”
Because of Theseus Athens was safe,
From the horrid King who fed us as bait.
The minotaur has been defeated,
Theseus’ mission has been completed.
