You are going to continue reading the book called ‘The Lost Myth of Mathos’.

Today we would like you to read Chapter 3 and complete the online quiz.  This has been set as a 2Do on Purple Mash for you.


Task 1: In Chapter 3 of The Lost Myth of Mathos, we were introduced to the Kraken – a colossal sea creature. Imagine you have just sighted an unusual mythical creature for the very first time. Write a detailed description of everything you saw and heard. Use the template on Purple Mash. This is a 2Do for you to complete today.

  • What sounds did the creature make?
  • Describe the body parts of the mythical creature
  • Describe it’s size – compare it to something you see everyday
  • Describe the way it moved
  • What colour is the creature? Don’t just state its colour, but include adjectives and a simile.


Something fun!

We are going to set you a project for the week, focused around the theme of ‘The Ocean and its wildlife’.

  • Choose an animal a day, do some research about it and choose a way to present it (a fact file, poster, information text, leaflet etc)
  • Aim to include an image of your animal, and include a caption in each piece of work.
  • Suggested animals to research (or you can think of some of your own) :
  • Blue whale
  • Whale shark
  • Manta Ray
  • Lion’s Mane Jelly Fish
  • Spider Crab
  • Leatherback Turtle
  • Clownfish
  • Angelfish
  • Rockhopper Penguin
  • Coconut Octopus


Research questions:

  • What kind of animal is it?
  • Describe its appearance
  • Where does it live?
  • What does it eat? How does it catch/get its food?
  • Include an interesting fact or 2!
