This is one of our cross curricular programmes which have excited students whenever they have experienced it.

We show students the constellations and how they can navigate around the sky.
Your students are then told some of the myths that surround the stars of the Zodiac. This fits in particularly well to the Year 4 curriculum when studying the Greeks.

 

Students can then work with you, creating their own versions of the myths and proudly displaying them, we would love some for our website.


This presentation has accompanying work booklets providing all of the relevant information for you, your colleagues and your students.

 

The class will also be taken on a tour of the Solar system with the discussion including the legends of the planets and the origins of their names.

Whilst these are primarily Roman names, each god has it's Greek equivalent.
