Year 5’s Anglo-Saxon village and Beowulf storytelling!

Comments Off on Year 5’s Anglo-Saxon village and Beowulf storytelling! 899

Year 5 have been learning all about the Anglo-Saxons!

We started off by examining a range of sources to find out why the Anglo Saxons came to Britain in the first place. Then we went on to learn about where they settled and how that changed over time.

Using a range of primary and secondary sources and our own research skills, we learnt more about life in a typical Anglo Saxon village including the different jobs, beliefs and laws of the time.

Finally, we brought  all this learning together and developed our own scripts for a film showing a typical Anglo-Saxon village. Please have a look at the finished result!



In literacy, we’ve been writing our own versions of Beowulf which is an Anglo-Saxon story. Here are some of our storytellers giving a dramatic performance of their finished work!
