US Grade 3 - 6
Come and discover one of the world’s oldest and most exciting stories: The Odyssey. Homer’s ‘The Odyssey’ tells of how Odysseus, a survivor of the Trojan War, makes his perilous journey home. Along the way he and his soldiers encounter Cyclopes, a sorceress, fearsome sea monsters and many other challenges. At the same time, we learn of what is happening back at home on Ithaka, as Odysseus’s wife, Penelope, and son, Telemachus, struggle to maintain hope and control as they are preyed upon by...
Have fun engaging with one of the most amazing stories ever told. Learn about the tale of the hero’s return from Ancient Greece. Learn about and read some of Homer’s ‘The Odyssey, an ancient poem that tells about the world’s most famous journey. Think deeply about and discuss complex themes - hope, intellect, love, transformation. Develop the ability to hold challenging story narratives in our heads. Produce creative responses to the story, through art and drama. The best thing is that when the class is over, your child can pass the story on to the next generation!
I have taught Ancient Greek tales in this way in UK primary schools since 2019, and am able to teach it in a way that is age-appropriate in terms of challenge and content. My Iliad Project on Outschool has rave reviews. Testimonial from a UK teacher whose students I taught: 'I was amazed at how, through Jonny's storytelling - which was both intricate and engaging - the children were able to internalise the complex narrative and use all of the new vocabulary.'
Homework OfferedThere is no compulsory homework element to the project, but children typically enjoy developing creative responses to the monsters we meet along the way. Between sessions, I will be encouraging children to draw the characters as they see them, and will be inviting them to make masks out of cardboard and other commonly available recycled stuff. This is entirely optional and the making would take place outside our five lessons. I emphasise that this is not essential.
A notepad for children to draw within and between sessions. Optional.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The nature of this story is that it is quite violent - it features heroes slaying monsters, and later on, heroes killing other men.

UPDATE I will soon be coming away from Outschool, as I will be teaching in schools across India. When I get back to the UK, I may be scheduling some Outschool classes, mostly for students I currently work with, but am not putting the dates in...
