Reading Comprehension - Theseus and the Minotaur: Re-read the text then...

1. Use the language of inference prompt below to discuss and explore the text further. If this could be done alongside an adult or even another pupil in class, it would be highly beneficial.

2. Explore the vocabulary and phrases that you highlighted (or wrote down) yesterday. Read around the word to deduce the meaning. Used its word class to help: is the word a noun, adjective, verb, adverb, pronoun etc.?

Vocabulary, from the text, that I think would be useful to explore -

  • periodically   
  • cease            
  • tyranny            
  • gingerly            
  • understatement    
  • pact

  • labyrinth         
  • relented            
  • bated
