We have kicked off the new half-term by beginning our work on Beowulf. On Monday, we read a poem about a warrior named Beowulf who sails across the Danish sea to slay a monster called Grendel. Beowulf reigns as king for 50 years until a dragon is awoken. Beowulf and his men battle the dragon but unfortunately they lose.

This week we have worked in groups to act out parts of the poem. Our performances also included a freeze-frame that best summarised that particular part of the poem. You can have a look at our performances  and freeze frames below! Mrs Orvis and Mr Garwood have been very impressed by our enthusiasm for the poem and brilliant acting!
