Form 4 have been enjoying studying Beowulf across history and English lessons. They were able to discuss ideas about what the story of Beowulf tells us about Anglo-Saxon society and culture before trying their hand at character descriptions of either the brave hero Beowulf or his fearsome opponent Grendel. Here are some of their sentences:

Grendel’s body was pond-weed green with big bulging warts on his back and tummy. (Vanessa)

His tusks were as hard as metal and his eyes lit up with darkness. (Ava-Grace)

Beowulf was a humble warrior who was a heroic figure to others who looked up to him. (Dean)

He was a true warrior, a saviour of many; a fighter with the power of success and superhuman strength. (Mason)
