Weeks 7 & 8: Mythomania


This week's challenge is inspired by the Mythomania exhibition at The Point, which was due to be on display before lockdown measures were brought in. This challenge also comes with the chance to win a top prize of a bundle of books.

The artist, Ian Kirkpatrick, has helped Phil record this week's challenge and there are bonus activities linked to the exhibition over on The Point's website too.

We're asking children to create their very own mythical story that should include the following things:

  • A hero
  • A problem or quest for the hero to overcome
  • An object or special power to help the hero
  • A monster!
  • A resolution to the story

Entries for this challenge are now closed but you can still use our video and top tips to help you create a mythical story.
