Year 3 Myths and Legends unit

Discussion in 'Primary' started by charlottemiddlebrook, Jan 15, 2012.

  1. Hi,
    I am a student teacher in my second year of training and wondered if you had any ideas for good myths that I could use for this unit? The class will be doing a cross-curricular History topic on 'Invaders and Settlers' (the Romans, Saxons and Vikings) and I wondered if anyone knew any good myths or legends related to these periods of history that I could use?

    you have chosena difficult area as thwere is not alot of child friendly material out there.so you might have to adapt
    arthur and merlin is one area
    the story of the dragon of wales
    the legends of norse ,especially the creation stories
    the origin ot the legendsof eastro and the mid winter.midsummer festivals
    the book 'norse legends and myths' by usborne books is a good book they might enjoy listening to.
    hope you enjoy the area
