To launch our new English and History topics, all of Year 5 gathered together to time travel back to Anglo-Saxon times to gain an understanding of their storytelling traditions. Just like the Anglo-Saxons, we met in a grand hall, only lit by a flickering camp fire and listened to the tale of Beowulf. After the dramatic retelling, we shared some simple food, bread, vegetable stew and some fruit (apples and plums). All of this helped us to think about what life might have been like during this great period.
