As a warm up writing activity the children of Hawk class had a go at writing the blurb for our class story for this week which is the story of Icarus - the boy who flew to high!
Have a read and give them a positive comment below.
"Throw him in the tower and lock him up." King Minos demanded. And so it was, Daedalus and his useless son Icarus found themselves locked in the tower with only a tiny burning candle and a tiny amount of rotting food to keep them going. Daedalus, the genius inventor, will have to use all his knowledge to help them escape. Will he come up with a new invention? Or will they be stuck there forever?!
King Minos had ordered Daedalus to build the labyrinths but now HE is getting punished! The reason is the prince has kidnapped the Kings daughter. It seems it's going to be a tough time for Icarus and his father. "Please, you asked me to build the labyrinth you majesty." Daedalus pleaded.
"No buts, take him and his sickly son to the tower." King Minos bellowed. Will Daedalus use one of his inventions to escape from the tower? Or will the be banished for eternity?
"What did he wrong," Daedalus muttered to himself.
Daedalus and his son Icarus were called before King Minos for allowing his daughter to be kidnapped by helping a young prince escape out of the labyrinth that Daedalus had invented. The inventor and his son were arrested and sent to a tower with only a guard to keep them company. Occasionally, they were given some bread and a candle which helped keep their spirits high. Will the inventor and his son ever be free?
Daedalus is a unique man. He invents so many things, that it came as a surprise when the King demanded; "you are responsible for my daughter being taken away from me."
"But you majesty you asked me to build the labyrinth!" Sniveled Daedalus.
"No buts, take him away."
Daedalus and his incompetent son were locked away in the tower. Will they every escape this nightmare?
King Minos ordered Daedalus to be arrested and locked in the tower forever. They were frustrated. The only people they saw were the guards, who would bring them a candle and a loaf of rotten bread. Will they ever escape from the tower?
