In Year 4, they have been travelling back in time to the 5th Century, when the Anglo-Saxons settled in Britain. Part of Anglo-Saxon culture was to celebrate successful raids and battles in the king’s great hall with a massive feast, cheerful music and listening to the storyteller’s terrific tales. One legendary story, which is over 1000 years old, tells us of King Hrothgar’s troubles with Grendel, the demon. In true Anglo-Saxon style, we sat around the campfire and retold the legend. It was great to put Year 4 in the shoes of the Anglo-Saxons.
