Beowulf Context

The children have really engaged themselves into this terms context of Beowulf. They have thoroughly loved hearing about all of the gruesome stories, as well as learning about the authors writing style and techniques. Over the course of the half term, the children have written some fantastic pieces of writing, using lots of alliteration, personification and expanded noun phrases. Well done everyone for your hard work.

Have a lovely Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

P.S. Get ready for Harry Potter

Hi Everyone,

From reading Beowulf, your task is to write a short review about one of the three stories. You can either choose to review: Beowulf and Grendel, Beowulf and the Sea-Hag or Beowulf and the Dragon. Good Luck Guys!

The Mead Hall

 

The Mead hall

Hey everyone! Miss Mitchell here! I feel really bad for the mead-hall in the story of Beowulf, as it’s simply stunning. However the evil, sinister Grendel and his dastardly mother completely trashed it!

What defensive actions could the mead-hall adopt to keep the great hall intact?

My friend Captain Conjecture says ’If the mead-hall has an area of 140m squared, the only perimeter  size must be 10m by 14m. Is he correct? Explain your answer?

If you were Hrothgar, what would you do if you knew a monster was on its way to your great hall?
