Day 1

Read the extracts contained in the PowerPoint below, as you are reading consider these questions:

What are the qualities of a hero / heroine?

How do heroes / heroines act?

How do they treat others?

What do heroes / heroines looks like?

Do all heroes have the same qualities?

Complete a heroes / heroines mind map  using  ideas from the extracts you have been provided with. You can also include information on any heroes and heroines, real or imaginary you have read or heard about.

Day 2

Create your own mythical hero or heroine then write a fact file or a short biography about him / her.

Remember heroes don’t need to physically strong! Intelligence, mental strength, resilience, kindness, selflessness are heroic qualities too

Here is an example of a fact file - yours does not have to be this detailed, but you might want to use some of the content to help you.

Day 3

Choose 1(*,**,***) of the SPAG sheets to complete.

Here are this week's spellings:

Day 4

Heroes and heroines need situations in which to be heroic!

These could be:

Quests / journeys : to find an object or rescue someone

Task / challenge: to face a creature / escape from a situation

A problem to solve

Think back to all the myths you have read over the past two weeks, use these as inspiration to help you think of different quests your hero / heroine could go and exciting challenges and problems they could face.

Complete the table below with your ideas.

  • Introduction/teaching slide(s) 
  • Independent task

  • Problem solving and reasoning task
  • Home Learning Challenge

You will still be set Mathletics on Tuesday and Thursday. 

Optional activities

Art - Last week you might have started to create your own Ancient Greek pot using your design from Week 3. Continue with your pot by adding some colour and paint to it. Send in a picture of the end result, we would love to see it. 


If you haven't started your pot yet, you can make a start this week. This pot should represent YOU. To make the pots, you can either use clay (if you have it at home), paper mache or salt dough. Think about what shape you want your pot to be. The instructions for all methods are on the PowerPoint below.
