3. ACTIVITY: Read through purple gloss box and narrative on p.19 [15]

DETAILS: We read through and repeated the words in the gloss box before volunteers read the narrative out loud.

OUTCOME: I focused in on the vocative use of ‘Megamu’ and explained how a vocative in Greek is often a shorter form of a name. We then practiced making our own names shorter, and called them out to each other to get each others’ attention.

REFLECTION: The pupils really enjoyed making vocatives of each others’ names. I also discovered that I’d been mis-calling a pupil called Luca ‘Lucas’ for the past six weeks!
