WALT: Research Greek Gods and Goddesses

 

Yesterday, we read the first chapter of our book ‘Beasts of Olympus’ where Demon was whisked away to Mount Olympus.

 

The Ancient Greeks believed in many different Gods and Goddesses. The most powerful 12 lived on the top of Mount Olympus. This is where meetings were held and arguments were settled.

 

 

Every city in Ancient Greece had a 'patron' God or Goddess. At the beginning of the year, we gave each Year 4 class a God or Goddess,

 

Doves: Aphrodite

Owls: Athena

Swifts: Apollo

 

Can you remember what these Gods and Goddesses represented? Don’t worry if you can’t because today’s task is to research Greek Gods and Goddesses. Their stories are fascinating so we hope you enjoy doing this research.

 

There are lots of brilliant websites with interesting information. This BBC website is particularly good:
