We have started our new class book, Beowulf, and are loving learning even more about the Anglo Saxons through this epic poem. We enjoyed acting out the first chapter today. We started by feasting in the great hall, Heorot.
Then Grendel, a terrible monster, stealthily crept in and killed the warriors sleeping there!
For 12 years, the Danes lived in fear and sadness.
But when the hero, Beowulf, heard of the Danes’ plight, he decided he and his brave warriors would sail across the seas so save them.
We are looking forward to finding out what will happen next!
