LC: To discuss and record ideas for planning.


Today, you are going to use the research you collected on King Alfred (from last term) to plan your historical narrative based on an event that took place during his life. You will use the T4W Beowulf text and the boxed-up Beowulf plan to help you plan your new text. 


You will need to access your King Alfred work now (either on your iPad or in your home learning book) to get started. If you haven't already done this, click on the Alfred the Great button above to get started.

Magpie Ideas


King Hrothgar is a strong and mighty king. He constructs a mead-hall to celebrate his conquests. The kingdom was joyful.






Nearby the kingdom, there was an evil monster called Grendel that stalked around the mead-hall killing Hrothgar’s people in the night.






Grendel continues to kill people over and over again. Hrothgar is in despair. News travels to Beowulf who said he would save Heorot from the foul fiend.






Beowulf travelled to Hrothgar’s kingdom and prepared for Grendel’s attack. Grendel appeared at night. Beowulf grappled and wrestled with Grendel and ripped off his arm. Grendel fled never to be seen again.





Beowulf had triumphed and King Hrothgar rewarded him. He put his victory into words and everyone remembered the day.





If you are working from home, please take a screen shot of the plan and fill it in. You can then email it to your teacher through Purple Mash. If you don’t have the technology to do this, record your plan in your blended learning exercise book. Your teacher will ask to see it on your return to school.
