The Legend of Beowulf

The epic story of Beowulf was the first recorded story in British history and is one of the most famous Anglo Saxon tales.  The Y4s brought it to life this week by creating freeze frames, saying how each character felt and improvising overheard conversations at key moments in the story.

The children had no trouble showing the dramatic battle between Beowulf and the terrifying monster, Grendel, as you can see below!

We’re moving on to creating our own versions of Beowulf so watch out for some terrifying monsters and fearsome dragons coming your way soon!
