So today we started thinking about our first text – ‘Beowulf’ and we discussed what makes an epic story. We even created our own epic story in the oral tradition of story telling – there were monsters, zombies and three different types of heroes!

We considered a few words which connect to the epic story and explored how they might be important. See the link below for a reminder of these words.

What is an epic story?

We discussed a few more things which you might want to spend some time thinking about before next lesson:

1. What is a theme?

2. Who is Michael Morpurgo and what has he written?

3. The history of the epic ‘Beowulf’ – perhaps you could research when it was written.


There was also some more great work and behaviour from students – see today’s tick list! Have a great weekend.
