You have read about three famous people from British history.
Question 1: Who are they ?
Here is a short video about Robin Hood.
Watch it twice, the second time write down any words you don’t know. I want at least five words.
Question 2: Returning to our three famous people, who was real, who was based on a real ruler and who is maybe only a legend?
Question 3: Match the pictures with the legends. EXAMPLE:
Sir Lancelot is part of the King Arthur legend.
Now … Your turn
Picture 1 is Friar Tuck
Picture 2 is Black Bess
Picture 3 is the sword Excalibur
Picture 4 is Maid Marion
Picture 5 is the Green Man Pub in London
Picture 6 is Sherwood Forest, Nottingham
Picture 7 is Camelot Castle
Creative Time – which character do you like most ? Which one would YOU like to be ? Alternately, tell me about someone from YOUR country’s history.
Write a short story, and feel free to draw and colour. You may make a comic book, if you like. If you can’t draw, no problem, just write.

I wish I could be … // In my dream, I would be …
1 – King Arthur / Robin Hood / Dick Turpin
2 – King Arthur was based on a ruler but probably a Duke, not a King. Dick Turpin was real, while we are still not sure if Robin Hood was real.
3 – Robin Hood / Dick Turpin / King Arthur / Robin Hood / Dick Turpin / Robin Hood
