How do we describe a mythical beast? 


Today, we will be looking at describing a mythical beast which will feature in your myths next week. We will be taking inspiration from Mexican alebrijes (chimera-like animals from Mexican folk art) and creating our own versions. We will be using these illustrations to write a character description for the alebrijes. You will need to give your alebrije not only an appearance, but personality, likes and dislikes and strengths and weaknesses. You will then write a detailed description of them using these headings as guidance. Be creative and don't forget to include your Year 6 GPS.
