This term we will be learning all about the Anglo– Saxons. Anglo-Saxon sagas are stories that mix references to real events with characters and events from Anglo-Saxon legends. They were told to entertain people, particularly at feasts which involved lots of eating and drinking late into the night! They also had another important purpose in that the characters and the plot contain important messages about Anglo-Saxon culture, such as the value that they placed on courage, repaying debts and loyalty to ones clan. Beowulf is the longest epic poem in Old English, the language spoken in Anglo-Saxon England before the Norman Conquest. It is one of the most famous works of Anglo-Saxon poetry, and tells the breath-taking story of a struggle between the hero, Beowulf, and a bloodthirsty monster called Grendel.
There are many versions of this poem, but we will be reading the Micheal Morpurgo version. It is translated from the Anglo Saxon period.
Within Topic, we will be looking at 'Viking vs Anglo-Saxons'. We will go on a fascinating journey of discovery as we find out about the Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the kingdom of England and how England became a unified country. We will explore where the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings came from, how they fought for territory and power, and how their fighting ultimately led to the kingdom of England we know today.
