Year 5 Lions - King Midas and the Golden Touch

This week the whole school were treated to a fantastic sharing assembly from the Year 5 Lions. The week began with an exploration of the King Midas myth through our new reciprocal reading sessions and the class decided that they enjoyed this mythical tale so much that they would like to share this learning with the other classes.

After this the class divided themselves into groups and took control of different sections of the story itself. They wrote scripts, using the language of the original myth, matched this up to pictures via a PowerPoint show and then added sound effects and fabulous acting.

It was quite a show and it culminated in a mini-quiz which drew gasps and cheers from their enthusiastic peers.

Congratulations go to every member of the Lions class as throughout the process they demonstrated confidence, creativity and enthusiasm. Well done Year 5!
