5MJ Arts Fortnight Theseus and the Minotaur

Our first week in the Art Studio with Mrs Johnston has flown.   The focus is around Greek Myths and in particular Theseus and the Minotaur.   We have started to put together a dance about this myth and the children have come up with some very impressive physical representations of the Labyrinth through dance.


We have practised making Labyrinths using various materials including wooden blocks, shells, pen and paper and Lego.  We have then drawn our own Labyrinths and are now in the process of making them into a relief with Modroc and newspaper. I am very impressed with Leah and Hafsa who have managed to do this brilliantly, both accurately and carefully.   Through Drama we acted out Theseus making his way through the Labyrinth, unable to see and in terror of the Minotaur ahead of him.  We then used this experience to inspire our writing of a description of Theseus’ journey through the Labyrinth.
