English
In English we will be reading 'The Legend of Beowulf' and basing our writing on the text. We will be completing role-play, character descriptions, summaries and even our own alternative versions of the legend. In addition to this we will be finding out as much as we can about the Vikings and compiling our own information texts about them.
