As part of our work on the Trojan War, we have written Elegies to Prince Hector, who was killed in a battle against Achilles, a Greek Warrior. Some of our work has been typed up here to share with you.
An Elegy is a poem written for when someone has died, or something important has been lost.
Elegy for Prince Hector by Hussain
All of Olympus is thunderstruck,
Artemis has put her bow down in despair,
For now, Hector has been destroyed.
Mean Achilles killed him.
He showed more disrespect
By dragging poor Hector's body around Troy.
Oh honourable prince, we will avenge you!
All of Troy wails in vexation
You were our greatest, most loved and humple prince.
Most noble of everyone, and our future.
May you have peace,
Elegy for Hector by Isa
All of Olympus is enraged.
Aphrodite's heart is broken.
Today Hector is dead.
Mad Achilles killed him.
Achilles showed more disrespect by tying Hector to a chariot and riding
Prince Hector, we will have our revenge.
All of Troy is furious.
You were our best, you were a generous Prince
Most glorious, and our future.
May you rest in peace,
Elegy for Hector by Ibrahim
All of the gods are infuriated,
Zeus has lit the sky with his rage.
Ruthless Achilles has killed our beloved Hector,
To be more disrespectful, he dragged him from the back of his chariot.
Our fair prince,
We will get our revenge on Achilles.
Hector was to be our future king.
May he rest in peace.
Woodlands Class have worked really hard this week. We started a new topic on the Ancient Greeks and have been looking at the Trojan War. We are acting in role as King Priam's councillors, and we wrote speeches to persuade him to do something. We then used DoInk Green Screen app to put ourselves in Troy, delivering the speech. Here are some of our videos. Please tell us what you think!
