This term year 4 are loving learning the African drums! You’ll get to hear us at the Listen to Me concert later in the term....
Today we started learning about our new topic.....The Anglo-Saxons. We were introduced to it through a mystery suitcase containing lots of belongings. We had to guess who they belonged to.
Then we did some drama to help us to understand how the Anglo-Saxons and Britons felt when they invaded Britain.
The Africa South orchestra,
The final composition
Having learnt all about how Anglo-Saxons choose a site for their village and then how they build their houses, we were given the task planning and building a shelter for our Beowulf character. We had to consider where would be a suitable place, just like the Anglo-Saxons did, and then what materials we would use to ensure Beowulf was protected and warm. We took our Beowulf characters out to ensure we had the correct dimensions. We worked as teams using our cooperation and communication skills. Take a look!
