Bringing Beowulf to Life!

Having written some fantastic stories inspired by the Saxon story of Beowulf, we practised reading them dramatically this morning.  The children created a rubric for what makes a good performance and critiqued each other in partners.  They commented on use of voice (high, low, quiet, loud), actions and pauses to add tension.  

It was amazing to see our children bringing their stories to life and encouraging each other to make them even better.

Here’s a few videos of the children who performed for the class:
