Kronos, the god of time

The ‘Myths and Legends’ genre is a great one to explore with children. To link this in with the topic of time, why not use your ICT lesson to research Greek myths and gather information about Kronos, the god of time? Once your children have a solid understanding of Kronos, and they are familiar with the structure of a myth, set them the challenge of writing a story involving him.
