Lego Challenge – Thursdays
Chatterbooks reading group – Saturday 12 December
- Saturday 12 December
- 11am to 12 noon
Take part in our Virtual Chatterbooks reading group session; this month we will be talking about Greek mythology, which is everywhere.
Who has not heard of mighty and short-tempered Hercules; of the rivalry between Zeus, Poseidon and Hades; the bitter quarrels between the Olympic gods and their favourite mortals; the heroic fights of the ten-year-long Trojan war; Achilles’ heel; Odysseus’ adventures; curious Pandora; Minotaur, Pegasus and Cerberus?
Whether you have read Greek and Roman myths, tales of the Iliad and the Odyssey, or books by Caroline Lawrence, Rosemary Sutcliff, J.K. Rowling, Anthony Horowitz, Rick Riordan, these myths are essential part of our culture, history and language.
They are much more than children’s stories. They help us to understand the world.
This session is suitable for ages seven to 12 and will be delivered using Microsoft Teams. Children will need consent from a grown up to take part.
