The Year 4 Quest Myth Project is a huge piece of work. It is the most extended piece of writing most children have ever done up to this point and they design everything themselves, from the characters to the world in which the myth takes place.
Year 4 are currently completing the Climactic Main Event section and still need to do the Journey Home and Ending. As you can see from the documents here, the work is very heavily scaffolded to allow the children to break a very large piece of writing into countless smaller sections. I have included virtually everything I use to teach the project so children can write their own from scratch if desired. I have adapted it to various different topics, hence the various different character examples. The writing is all from this year's Stone Age topic though (Ancient Egyptian and Roman versions are available).
This project has taken me a LONG time to adapt and develop over the years so please don't put pressure on yourselves or your children to follow the full route shown below. I have opted to give you pretty much everything I have so that you and your children can pick and choose whatever you would like to work on. Please bear in mind that creating and understanding a project inside and out makes it much easier to deliver than having to follow somebody else's plans so you have a tougher job than me already!
When I teach this, I include skills lessons in between the writing sections on
I will (at some point!) put some resources for these skills on here.
The order of teaching is as follows:
