The Apple of Discord - a Greek myth

apple of discordDuring the Erasmus+ project meeting at Whitehouse Common last March, the Greek teachers were going to share a Greek myth with Reception. Not to be defeated by Covid19, they shared the lesson and materials with us and, almost a year to the week, Reception completed one of the planned activities. 

The apple of discord/ goddess Eris «ΤομήλοτηςΈριδας» tells the story of a wedding on Mount Olympus between Pileas and Thetis. Eris wasn't invited and was angry. She decided to scause trouble, leaving a golden apple onto a wedding table with a note: “To the prettiest goddess.” Three of the goddesses, Aphrodite, Athene and Ira started to fight as they all thought that they were the prettiest.Zeus asked paris to decide, and Aphrodite offered to help him marry Helen of Troy if she was given the apple. He gave it to her, and they kidnapped Helen. Unfortuanyely she was already married to King Menelaos who was very angry. And that, as the myth says, is how the Trojan war began.

Having read and listened to the story, Reception responded by drawing in an apple. Some of them drew their favourite parts from the myth whilst others summarised the whole myth with an drawing. 

Here's a video that showcases their work.
